Any design or decoration that can be added to a standard size pillow case can be used for King Size Pillowcases as well. Additions designed to run the length or width of the pillow case will need to be cut slightly longer due to the increased dimensions of the king size pillowcases. In many cases, a standard pillow case can be converted to a king size pillowcase by adding a border to the opening edge.
