Topic tags/keywords: question resource templates design border

I need to make a round 3.5” border for a project I’m in middle of, and would love to have a template to use for the design, which I will cut using a scrollsaw. Any ideas where I can get printable templates that can be used for a specific size? Thanks!

Not sure exactly what you mean by a “round border”. Like a picture frame around a round insert? If so, why not make a big compass and draw it on?

I’m with Matt.. not really sure what it is you are trying to do. Just print out a circle on some paper so you can glue it onto the piece as a template? If so, that’s super simple… make the circle in your preferred graphics program and print it out. But as suggested, it would be much easier to just use a compass (or even a stick pin and piece of string!) and draw it…

Sorry if I wasn’t clear…I was referring to a border with curliques, swirls, or some other form of design on it.

Have your say...
