Throwback Thursday: Creating Bulletin Board Letters

Here is a post from August 21, 2012…It was a technology tip for a linky party.

I am sitting here wracking my brain about what I can share with teachers using technology.  I am not an expert, but I do okay. I couldn't come up with anything.

 I decided to share how to make great looking letters for bulletin board using your computer...that counts right???  Many people now use die-cut machines like Cameos and Cri-cuts.  You don't need fancy tools to create something like this....

1.  Choose a bold font that you like.  I set the page as landscape, I used SAF 
and size was 550.  You have to type it in computer only goes up to 72.

2.  Type out your words, highlight and click on text effects, the outlined blue A on the tool bar.  Choose outline and line effects.  You can also right click, go to fonts and click on text effects at the bottom.
3.  Click on text fill and choose no fill.  Click on text line black.  Click on weights and arrows. I chose solid line and 4 point, it is your preference on colors and lines.  I choose thicker lines, so I can cut them out and still have some black showing.

5.  You are ready to print!  I added some scraps of paper and stitching using a sharpie marker.  I made this on foam board.

I hope this technology tip will help someone out there!
