For something with a more tropical flavor, this Hawaiian themed border is joy, colorful but functional too. The fine thing about two-sided borders is that you get a good framework to your page without it predominant everything else, leaving slew of room for your text.
I found some superb Hawaiian hibiscus flower clipart, that was accompanied with the greenery so the hard work was already done. I then pasted in some digital swirls and used the color picker implement to make them match with one of the mid green leaves in the clipart.
Decorative Daisy Border
Sometimes the most plain borders are the best, and this one gets the flower theme across without being entirely surrounded in flowers. This would make some excellent decorative notepaper, a puny noticeboard poster, or even some stationery for a florist or gardening business. My individual dearest use for this border is for a thank you letter or card, as it truly seems to suit that theme.
The green framework was just a rectangle form with the line colored green and then made extra thick to create the border. The daisy was created using the same method as above, but this time I added a ready made digital stalk to the daisy and an oval form packed green to create the balancing feel of the leaf.
Lei & Hibiscus Border
For a full-on feel of the tropics, this lei and Hibiscus flower border can’t fail to make you feel cheerful. Good for party invitations, especially summer BBQs, this will framework your text ideally.
The leis and Hibiscus flowers are actually from a beach dingbats font collection, that was effortless enough to incorporate into a border design using CraftArtist. Once you’ve achieved one pairing of dingbats you like, select them both to copy and paste into the next position to save some time and to make sure the spacing is consistent. The swirls at the top and bottom were digital embellishments simply copied and flipped to create a symmetrical feel.
Colorful Flower Side Border
Flowers are bright and beautiful so why shouldn’t your free borders be like that too. This is a wonderfully cheerful border that truly injects some color into your projects, albeit still leaves slew of room for you to write, type or scrapbook. The best thing about this border is that it only takes up one side of your page so is suitable for almost any project.
Use it as is or make it into a total border with a bit of cutting, rotating and pasting. Or attempt drawing a ordinary rectangle form around the page to join up with your flowers – send the form to the back so the flowers still shine through.
Circular Floral Border
Who says borders have to be rectangular? This is an absolutely adorable flower border that not only offers something different in the way of form, it is also a excellent one to use for Christmas projects too. The artist of this clipart refers to it as ‘Christmas flower.’ I don’t think it’s a poinsettia but it certainly has that look. Of course it’s such a superb photo it’s versatile to any time of year.
An effective design to use as a photo framework, or print onto an acetate sheet for a superb scrapbook overlay. Use it as a feature on a welcoming card and there would be little else to do — excellent room inwards for a verse or quote.

Or take it down a notch by using it in a black and white scheme.
