Feel free to download and use these Images for both Commercial and Personal Use. Visit the FlyerTutor Blog posts on Royalty Free Stock Photography and Royalty Free Vector Clip Art to find out more.
Once the Images have been downloaded, you will need to place them into the Flyer.
This opens the Insert Picture Window.
Locate the Images that need to be inserted. You can select multiple Images by holding down your Ctrl Key while clicking on each Image.
This way you don't have to reopen this Window every time you need to insert an Image.
After making your selection, click the Insert Button at the buttom of the Window.
Your Images are neatly placed on the right side of the Flyer.
You can make a couple Duplicates if you'd like. Clearly we need to arrange the placement of these Images.
Use the Send Backward and Bring Forward Icons to achieve depth.
We won't touch the Snowflake just yet, since we need to add the Title first.
Adding the Title will make it easier to see where to add each Snowflake.

Where Can You Download Free Fonts?
Unzip Files & Install Fonts on Windows Vista.
Drag and draw a Text Box on the Flyer. You'll see a Flashing Cursor. Type the word "Christmas".
The Text will be very small. Double click over it to select it.
You'll notice 2 Format Tabs. Click the one that has Text Box Tools above it.
In the Font Group click the Down Arrow on the right side of the Font Box and select Junebug.
Next to the Font Box is Font Size. Type in 65 and hit your Enter Key.
See the change made to the Text.
Select Red from the Color Menu.
Next select the rest of the Letters and set their Fill Color to White.
Of course it will be hard to make out this Text because of the White in the Flyer Background.
Select all the Text and click the Text Effects Icon in the WordArt Styles Group.
Then select Shadow > Offset Diagonal Bottom Right.
The Shadow clearly does not make the Text stand out as much as it should.
Adjust the Shadow Transparency by going to Text Effects > Shadow > Shadow Options.
In the Format Shape Window set Transparency to 25% and click OK.
Now the Text is easier to see.
Select just the 'C' and give it a White Outline, setting its Weight to 4 1/2 pt.
Set the Font to JungleFever, Font Size 75.
Next add the words 'Toy Drive', then set the Fill to Red for one word and Green for the other.
Add a White Outline each, with a Weight of 3 pt. Add the same Shadow to both words.
Go to the Home Tab and select the Line Spacing Icon from the Paragraph Tab.
A Drop Down Menu appears.
Select Line Spacing Options.
This opens the Paragraph Window.
In the Line Spacing section set After Paragraphs to 0 pt and Between Lines to 0.85 sp.
Then click OK to see the change.
With the Text still selected, click the Align Right Icon from the Paragraph Group.
Move the Text into place on the Flyer.
Now let's add the remaining Text to the Flyer before having some fun with Snowflakes.
Set the Fill and Outline Colors and give the Text a Shadow for visual effect.
Create a New Text Box for the 'Toy's' Text setting the Font to Days and Font Size 30.
Move the Text Box so that the Text is Centered under the 'Date' Text.
The last set of Text Boxes use the Days Font with Font Sizes 16 and 18.
Some of the Text is Centered. Now to the final touches.
Let's change this by Recoloring the Image. On the Format Tab in the Adjust Group, click the Recolor Icon.
This opens a Drop Down Menu from which you will select More Variations > White.
The Snowflake will become White and be easier to see on the Colored Background.
Now create a few Duplicates and place in different places on the Green Strips.
You should also vary the Size of the Duplicates to create a nice contrast.
At the bottom Red Area of the Flyer add some White Circles of varying sizes.
You've actually created this complicated Christmas Toy Drive Flyer using Microsoft Publisher 2013.
