Typed Embellishments (Inserting Special Characters)

Last week I did a post on typing in circles by inserting special characters.  Well, here's another fun and easy way to insert special characters.  
I call them swirls, for lack of a better word.  These make great embellishments for anything you type.  You can follow the same steps I used here, but don't use the GungSeo font.  The fonts you will need to look for are listed in the pictures below above each set of "swirls".

These are only a few of the swirls available.  Go ahead and scroll through each font to see all the possibilities.  
Here's one way I used the swirls to embellish one of my favorite quotes.  They add just the perfect touch, don't you think?

  1. Nice quote from Sark. She wrote Succulent Wild Woman which is where my blog name came from. After my sister and I read the book, everything was "succulent" meaning very cool and wonderful. I like the printable, too. What program do you make your printables in? I'm pinning this one, also. Linda

    1. I just used Open Office. I'm no pro by any means, but it's fun to do what you can with what you have. Thanks so much for your kinds words!

  2. I love your tutorials on how to do this intricate word processing stuff. Always welcome. I featured this tutorial because I know it's something most people don't know. Take care, New Party is OPEN. Linda
