    Another way to do it..

    Is to create the object first, and then select the text tool and place over the object you want to use. The text will automatically wrap itself. Then you can use the toolbar to adjust the settings.

    It needs to be a vector object.

    Another thing you could do would be to make the shape you want over top the jpg, apply the text to that object and make that object a no fill with no outline.
