DIY Stationery With Clipart

Sample of colorful stationery made with clipart.

Whether you are a homeschool parent or classroom teacher one thing you always need is a notepad for your lists, ideas and quick notes.  Make your own notepads and personal stationery (with matching envelopes).  If creating your own projects with clipart is new for you, you might be surprised at how easy it is to do.  Use clip art images that reflect you, your interests, or hobbies (a row of kids, hearts, and flowers, cups of coffee). 

(You can find borders and frames clipart here and ready to print and use stationery and borders here.) 

It is not only rewarding to make your own stationery with clip art – it is easy and fun to be able to create something that looks just the way you want it to. Use clipart borders alone or try overlapping some fun images over a simple border.  Experiment.

Even making grocery lists is fun when you make them on a notepad you created with pictures you like to look at.

Start with a Border or Image

If you want a border to decorate your page, place it on your page and enlarge or reduce it to fit your space.  

Borders come in all shapes and sizes. You can also get them in different formats; clipart format or ready to use format.  The ready to use borders are ready for your printer. Clipart is a perfect choice if you want to enlarge or reduce the images to fit your space.

If you are creating a notepad you can fit 4 images on an 8 1/2 x 11-inch page. These are a perfect size for quick lunchbox notes, pillow notes, or pocket notes.  Whether you are writing lunchbox notes to your kids or making lists and sending reminders, send your notes along with a cute clipart image.
