Corner and border designs can elevate a project from ordinary to eye-catching. If you’re ever working on a paper project that lacks “oomph”, try putting a design in all four corners, connect them, and see what happens! More often than not, border designs direct the eye to a spotlight center element while adding artistic value to a piece.
The star of today’s article is this Artistic Corner Designs PDF, which comes to you as a free download. In it, you’ll find ten different artistic corner designs and tips for making those designs. Today, I’ll walk you through how to create the designs in two tutorial videos, then I’ll show you some examples of the corner and border designs in action!

Showcasing Artistic Corner and Border Designs
There are countless ways to implement the designs in today’s tutorial! Here are some of the projects that I’ve used them on:
These Janet Style calligraphy place cards have a Simple Curlicue in each of their four corners.
This little card has a big message, and the “Arrows and Feather” motif complements the message. (An arrow has the potential to go far, just like we do!)
The “Simple Leaves” border on the envelope below helps the calligraphy to stand out. The pretty, muted green McCaffery’s ink certainly doesn’t hurt.
There are many possibilities for these artistic corner designs. Feel free to use them to best suit your projects and your personal style!
