If you want to combine text and any shape so they look like one,  follow these steps:

  1. Type your text. Any kind of font would work, but I prefer a thicker one. As I always say, experiment!
  2. Click on Path and select Object to Path. Now your text is a path and you can see it as an outline.
  3. Draw any shape that you want: a star, flower or anything that you can create.
    Copy and Paste, Resize or change the shape if you want to use it more than once.
  4. Select the shape/s and position it over the letter/s.
  5. Select the text and the shapes, everything that you want to combine.
  6. Click on Path, and choose Union.
  7. The shapes are going to be part of the letters.
  8. If  you make a mistake, use Ctrl+Z to undo and start again.

This is easy to do and you can apply it to so many different shape combinations, not just with fonts.
