Hello everyone,

I want to create this shape but none of the paths are closed and I want to close them. I know how to close the paths but I want the shape to stay like this with closed paths so I can use Envelope Distort with this object. I want to type words in each area so I need each area to be a closed path.

Thank you

You can use Live Paint to fill the areas and make them closed shapes.
