Did you want to print inside the body of a circle or print around the edge of a circle? Both of these techniques can be done using WORD.
Words around the outside of a circle: Like THIS?
Open a new document
Click on INSERT
Scroll down to PICTURE
Click on WordArt a dialog box will appear
I choose the box on the upper left (outline)
Click on OK type in what you want Click OK
Your outlined words will appear in your document
Find the small WordArt dialog box
To the right of Edit Text you will see abc
Click on abc and choose your shape….. you may have to alter the shape by dragging it around some…
At this time you can click on EDIT TEXT and change your font, bold, italic whatever you want it to be
Also click on the little paint bucket/brush to choose your outline and the fill for the font…
As you are doing all these things you must have the small little square around the text to do anything in WordArt
Shape of circle: Like THIS?
Open new Doc
Click on Auto shape and make a circle the size you want
Look up and see and click on INSERT
Scroll down and
Click on add text box
You will need to right click on each circle and text box to format them to have no fill
Drag the square text box over the circle
You should see the text box and the circle inside it
Center you text and type in the TEXT box, you may have to add a few spaces here and there to make the text fit the circle.
When you have the text the way you want it.. again right click on the text box and then the circle to format and click on no line for each…….
This is a good tip. It took me a few min to figure out...as I have office 2007...and I haven't used it as much as I did office xp. If you have the more current version of office...it's almost the same directions as above...but the insert is a tab on the top and word art is over to the right...don't click on picture...it'll just bring up files. Once you've followed the word art and picked your art style...the second box will have a funky looking 'A' that you can click on...if you just place your curser over the letter 'A' you'll see that it says "change wordart shape". The rest of the directions are all the same. HTH
You guys are the BEST!!! I cannot believe all the help!
Thank you soooooooooooo much, I will practice now. I just love making tags for gifts and love how some stamps fit in the circle punch, but never the right saying I am looking for, now I can print my own!!
