DIY Halloween Skeleton Border

Ever wondered how to make a quick border from a piece of clip art you like? If you don't have PhotoShop or some other editor it might seem like a difficult task, but it's really not. Windows Paint is free and comes with Microsoft Windows machines. You can do quite a lot with this basic graphics editor. If you use another graphics editor, the steps are basically the same.

Here's a step-by-step tutorial that will show you how to make your own quick clip art borders.

How to: Quick and Easy Clip Art Border
I needed a skeleton graphic border for a Halloween project so I made a quick and easy divider from free clip art. You can use this same method to make a simple clip art border of your own. If you need a vertical border, just create a document in the size and shape you want and use these same basic steps to copy, clean up and paste multiple images in a row or stack:

1. I copied the original Trick or Treat skeleton graphic to my computer's hard drive, then opened up Windows Paint, created a New document,  and pasted the skeleton graphic in the editor window.

2. Next I zoomed in to get a good view of  the image so I could select only the skeleton. I used the selection tool to surround the entire skeleton image but not include the Trick or Treat caption at the bottom of the original graphic.

3. I used the CROP tool to remove the caption, but a little bit of red and black remained. I adjusted the image size without changing the size of the skeleton so I would have more room to work

4. To clean up the new skeleton picture and get rid of the red and black spots, I used the Paint Brush tool with Color 1 set to white, then painted over the spots near the skeleton's feet. 

5. Next I saved the graphic, then created an image measuring the width of the border I needed - 600 pixels - and  pasted the cleaned up skeleton into it at the right side. I then selected ALL and then pasted another copy of the skeleton into this image. I moved it over so it was next to the first skeleton taking care to make sure it wasn't overlapping anywhere.

7.  Finally, I copied the two skeletons and pasted another pair next to the first set to create my finished Halloween skeletons border.

Fantasy Flowers Clip Art Borders

Spring fever made me do it.

I'm more than knee-deep in snow here in New England, and I'm anxiously looking out the window for signs of spring.

Never good at waiting, I decided to create my own harbingers of warmer weather with these pink and lavender daisy clip art borders.

Maybe they'll make Easter come a bit sooner ... or just make the waiting easier.

Here's hoping the snow melts and the crocus start peeking out ... in the meantime, enjoy!

What's more romantic and passionate than red hearts? A border of red hearts running all around your page or framing your favorite person, pet or what have you ... this red hearts frame border is ready for your paper crafting as a full size page to write letters or make flyers, posters and scrapbook pages.
