Abstract: The aim of this note is to study the construction of the boundary of a self-similar tile, which is generated by an iterated function system $ \{\phi_i(x)=\frac{1}{N} (x+d_i)\}_{i=1}^N$. We will show that the boundary has complicated structure (no simple points) in general; however, it is a regular fractal set.
