I created a pattern to fill into the selection as shown above, but I dont want the star patterns to touch the edges as I have to give it for laser cutting. Is there any way we could solve this issue?

There is a couples of simple solutions

  1. you can use appearance so your border have a sounding white space that cover the starts when it appear underneath, or
  2. you can draw a white rectangle that contain your pattern in a separated layer and the border in another layer that inner padding that is far from the white rectangle the distance you want.
