This number is not on the Size List, just type it in the Size Box.

Now you can make a slight adjustment to the Text to Center it on the Path.

Using the Text Tool click at the beginning of the Easter Text and move your Spacebar a couple times so that the Text becomes Centered.

The Text is now alot more striking than when it only had the Thin White Outline.



Step 25: Add & Format Text

OK, for the Text within the Bunny's Ears, the Font is Desyrel, and Font Size is 30pt. Each line of Text needs to be Rotated and given a White Fill.

Create another 3 Point Curve for the Ages Text.

For the Spot the Bunny & Eggs Text you will need to create 3 separate Text Boxes. Each one can then be postioned differently.

Once you move the Text close together, no one will be able to tell that this is not just one block of Text.
