Delightful Dingbats

Do you know what Dingbats are?
They are basically fonts, but instead of letters they are drawings, shapes, doodles ect.

They can be used as regular characters in programs like Word, My Memories and Silhouette Studio!
That’s right, dingbats can provide thousands of shapes for you to use!
I used the font WW Flakes from for my Snowflake Chandelier.

You install them like a normal font. I walked you through the process in my post on adding unique fonts to your blog. Not ALL fonts will work in every program. I wish I could tell you why but I have no clue.

If you plan on working with a lot of dingbat fonts I highly recommend making an inventory sheet in Word or another program. I made a 4 column table like this:

You can highlight the column and change the whole think with one click. This font has the same characters for upper and lowercase, some have different characters. This font is Christmas Trees.

Here are a few other Dingbats you might enjoy:

Birds of a Feather

Kaloscai Flowers

LP Snowflakes

I hope you have some fun playing around with dingbats!
