I really want to make my own invitations, but I’m having trouble finding appropriate borders and clip art for them. I have a springtime bluebirds/swallows/songbirds theme and would really like to incorporate that into my invitations, but Google searches are not turning up much for me! Any suggestions on where to find good clipart and borders for printing?

You could try Microsoft templates, I think I remember seeing wedding related stuff on there, they also have tons of clip art and its free! Here’s the link:

Did you try Microsoft Office’s Online ClipArt Gallery? They have a lot of cute stuff. Flickr is good, too!

I tried to upload a really cute pic of a bird, but it won’t let me. Just check there!

It sounds like you are using MS Word. Another option is to go to a more graphic designer type program like GIMP. It is free! http://www.gimp.org/
You can find a ton of brushes (or vector art) for GIMP, just search for it on google or try out these sites: deviantart or brusheezy
Good luck and feel free to PM me if you have more questions.

Thanks guys! I actually have searched through the MS Office offerings – I have a masters in Communications, so preparing stuff like this is usually a breeze for me. I just can’t seem to find appropriate bird art… Bummer! I no longer have a tablet to draw my own, and it’s driving me nuts. I’ll keep looking – keeop the suggestions coming, you guys are great! 🙂

Try looking at some dingbats fonts. That’s how I got all my art for my DIY wedding map. Da font has a nature category that might have what you’re looking for:

Also another great place is
There are some free ones there. But some you have to pay for and but they are no that badly priced. They have a little bit of everything there. That is where I am getting most of mine from. Hope this helps good luck.

While browsing the Avery site for templates, I came across this link which looks like some free credits on iStock Photo. I haven’t tried it yet, so not sure about any restrictions, but it’s certainly worth a shot if you are going to purchase something anyway.

I know this is bad, and probably against everything copy written and holy. But I got a lot of my clip art from saving images of rubber stamps that stores were selling. For example, http://www.paper-source.com/cgi-bin/paper/kits/animal-stamps.html
you can right click any image, and save it in your pictures….
there are a ton of cute images, and some great sparrows, that I am thinking of using
PS, Paper-Source don’t sue me, I got all my paper from you!
