Microsoft Word 2007 has several options for inserting a frame shape into your document. Clip art frames can be used as a background image. Or add and custom design a frame for a photo inserted into the document. Still another option is to use a basic square shape as a frame backdrop. Look to the main tool bar at the top of your Word 2007 document to find all of these options.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Insert a clip art frame from MS Word’s selections. Click the “insert” tab at the top of the page and then click “clip art.” Type “frame” in the search box that opens. Select the frame you want by double-clicking it.

  2. 2

    Open the photo editing tools to place a frame around a photo in the document by double-clicking the photo. At the top, see several photo frames to choose from. Click on the one you want to insert around the photo. Change the colour of the frame by clicking on “picture border” and choosing the colour you want.

  3. 3

    Insert a line-drawn frame shape by using the “shapes” tool under the “insert” tab. Click “shapes to see the choices of shapes that can be used as a frame. Click on the shape of your choice to insert it into the document.
