    How about an Old English letter and illuminate it. I've had kids create borders
    and patterns from the basic strokes ( it puts a new twist to the practice of
    strokes) and then do an Old English in the center of the calligraphed paper.
    alos , I ve seen calligraphy used inside the shape of the word being done, for
    example- calligraphy the word apple many times inside the outline of an apple.
