Thanks so much for these FREE frames and borders. They are bold, jazzy and colorful, and I'd love to use them. Only problem is, I don't know how! How can I put them in a Word doc? I've tried copy and paste special--the border goes on, but I want to type information in the white area that is framed, and it isn't letting me. Thanks for any help anyone is willing to share.

Hello. Just to make sure I do not mess anything up, when I sell items that use your awesome frames, all I have to do is have a page in my document that says these frames are created by you and put a link to your store?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  April 1, 2014The 3am Teacher answered:
Yes. Make sure the file is secured with a password to prevent copying of the images. If you have more questions, here id the link to my terms of use. You may also email me if you have specific questions and I will be more than happy to help!

On  September 6, 2013,  Buyer asked:
I was able to download all of the great borders. Thank you so much.

My question is are you able to print them? It doesn't allow me to print.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  September 6, 2013The 3am Teacher answered:
First, you will need to unzip or extract the zipped file with the images. All of the files are individual images in PNG format. If you want to print it, just open the file and use your printer settings to choose the size. If you want to insert them into a Word or PP document first, you can do that by inserting the images and positioning them to suit your needs.

Here is a free tutorial I created on how to create cover pages that will show you how to also insert the frames into a document and add text to the frame before printing.

I wanted to create some reward cupons using your borders to use with my class. How do I print and edit on them?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  September 1, 2013The 3am Teacher answered:
All of the graphics are individual png images. You will need to extract the file, save the images on your computer and then use the tool menu in Word or another word processing application to insert the images into a file. You can also just open the picture and print.

Here is a file that might be helpful to you.

I downloaded these borders and frames and love them. I am starting my own blog and trying to create my button and I would really love to use the rainbow border for part of it. I read your terms of use about using for blogs, but it didn't really mention using them for buttons. Can I use the border for a button if I add your blog button to the side of my blog?

Thanks,

Make sure you extracted them from the zipped file and saved them onto your computer or flash drive before using them in anything.

I'm new to this. I've down loaded the frames, how do I insert text and other graphics? Thanks
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  December 9, 2012The 3am Teacher answered:
The frames are meant to be used just like any other clip art. You can open a new document, choose to insert an image, and then place the image/frame where you want it.

The process really depends on what OS you are using (PC or MAC). There are several tpt sellers who actually have tutorials on this, Traci Orman and Erica B. are two that I know of who have great tutorials.

I hope this helps.

Great download! thank you! On your thumbnail pictures the swirly border design, can I find this in word or what program do I have to use to find that?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  August 18, 2012The 3am Teacher answered:
This is a compressed zipped file and should include all of the borders you see in the thumbnails. You can use these frames the same way you would use any other clip art.

Open a new Word Doc.
Choose: Insert Image/picture
Browse/locate the image file where you saved it on your computer
and press okay to insert it into WORD.

Once in Word, you can position and size the image the way you would like..

NOTE** If the image appears to be "stuck" where you inserted it - here is what you will need to do...

1. Click on the image and the Picture tool bar will appear.
2. With the picture tool bar open go to >WRAP TEXT. >Click on WRAP TEXT and scroll down to select > IN FRONT OF TEXT

To add text to the frame, all you need to do is click on the INSERT tab> TEXT BOX >Scroll down to choose >DRAW TEXT BOX

Your i-beam will become a plus sign and you can click anywhere in the document, hold down and drag until you get the size you want. You can always re-size or change the look by right clicking the corner of the box (make sure your mouse is showing the move tool and not your ibeam) scroll down to Format text box and you will have many options to play around with.

Hope this helps (-;

You should be downloading a zipped file, not a Word doc. The individual png images are zipped, so you will need to unzip the file and extract the images. Once you extract the images, you should be able to save them onto your computer in Pictures or documents (your preference). Try this first.
