Creating new shapes in PowerPoint 2003

With the technique of automatically closing a freeform shape, you can create pretty much any shape you want. Then, by converting the points to corner points, you can use the Bezier curves to create new shapes that are more visually interesting. Try it out and see how it works for you.
