    Party Room Border

    Party Room Birthday Border The first border in this list can be used for birthday party invitations, mini birthday scrapbook pages, or birthday greeting cards. This border can be opened in any graphic program and edited. Using a blue text would really make this border stand out. You can also use a neat font to add that bit of excitement to it. You can find some really neat fonts right here on Bright Hub. If you are using it for a scrapbook page, you can fade the photos into the gold section, or make the photos stand out by adding a bright blue, bright green, or one of the other bright colors in the border fame to the photos.

    Pooh Bear Birthday Border

    Pooh Bear Birthday Border The next border would make a great birthday border for invitations. This border will probably work best for babies or a small child since it is Pooh Bear. To use this as an invitation, you can open it in any graphic editor and add the party information in the center of the border. You can use a child's font to make the invitation fun looking. You can use a mix of colors for the text as well, but I would use the colors found in the border.

    This is a fun balloon border you can use for invitations, greeting cards or small scrapbook pages.

    Balloon and Presents Border


    The next birthday border I created is very simple with some balloons at the top and presents at the bottom. I added the greeting to give it more of a birthday look. You can open this border in a graphic program like Photoshop, Illustrator, Fireworks, Gimp, Inkscape and other graphic programs to edit it. You can add more text to create a greeting card or party invitation. You can also open this border in a graphic editor or scrapbook program and create a mini scrapbook page by adding photos and frames to the photos.

    Teddy Bear and Balloons Border


    If you are looking for birthday borders for invitations, take a look at this border. This border has a bear sitting down with balloons behind it. I also added a greeting that says "Birthday Time". With that type of greeting, this border will probably work best for an invitation. You can open it in the graphic editor you use and add the birthday party information. You could also turn this border into a photo frame. All you would need to do is open the border in a graphic program and place the photo on the left. Then use an inset bevel to make the photo look like it is in a frame.

    Happy Birthday Greeting Border

    Happy Birthday Greeting Border 

    The next birthday border can be used for just about any type of DTP project. You can open it in a graphic editor program and turn it into a greeting card, party invitation or anything else you want to create. If you have some graffiti clipart or balloons clipart, you could add that to the border to have more graphics.

    Balloons & Greetings Birthday Border

    Balloons & Greetings Birthday Border This is one of the borders I found online. The balloons and greetings birthday border is one of those borders that will work with many projects. When I look at this border, I think of small scrapbook page. I can see smaller photos rotated on this border with frames to match the greetings on the border. You could open this border in any graphic editor and add your photos. Then you could draw squares or rectangles over the photos to create your frames. Remember to change your fill to transparent. Then use the border color for the actual frame.

You could open it in a graphic editor and use a child's font if you wanted to create a child's birthday card.

    Party Hats Border

    Party Hats Birthday Border This next border is a simple border with party hats. The red and green party hats frame the entire border and would probably work best for birthday party invitations. It would be a bit difficult to use this border as a scrapbook page due to the limited space, but you could use it as a framing tool. You may want to stick to using it for an invitation or a greeting card. You can simply open this border in a graphic program and add text to create an invitation or greeting card. You may want to use a fun type font for the text. This also may be a border you would want to use for smaller children.

You could place smaller photos in the center of the border and use different color frames to match the balloons. You could also use this border for greeting cards and birthday party invitations. You would simply need to open the border in your graphic program and edit it from there.
