Microsoft Publisher Easter Egg Hunt Flyer Tutorial
To the far right of the Format Tab is the Size Group. Here you will see the Height and Width of the selected Object.
Set Height to 3.5 Inches and Width to 8.5 Inches.
Click in any grey area to see the change made to the Shape. Then, using your Arrow Keys, drag the Shape to the top of the page.
To get out of editing the Shape, go back to Edit Shape > Edit Points. You'll now be able to select the Shape.
To create a Duplicate select the Shape then hold down your Ctrl and D Keys together. This will create 1 Duplicate.
You could also go to the Clipboard Group of the Home Tab. Select Copy.
Then select the Paste Icon once to create 1 Duplicate.
The Duplicate Shape is placed above the Original.
In the Format Tab, select the Rotate Icon from the Arrange Group.
This opens a drop down menu with options for Rotation.
Select Flip Vertical.
The Duplicate becomes Flipped Vertically or Upside Down.
Drag it to the bottom of the page.
With 2 identical shapes on the page, we want to Decrease the Size of the Bottom Shape, so that there is some Contrast between the 2 Shapes.
In the Size Group, set its Height to 2.75 Inches.
Select the Original Shape. On the Format Tab select Shape Fill from the Shape Styles Group.
This opens a drop down menu with options for Color, Picture, Gradient, Texture and Pattern Fills.
Select the 3rd Option in the Purple Column of the Scheme Colors Section which is called Followed Hyperlink (Violet), Lighter 60%.
Selecting the Duplicate Shape, set its Fill Color to Light Green which is in the Standard Colors Section.
This step is almost the same as the previous one, only you would select Shape Outline from the Shape Styles Group instead.
Give each Shape the same Outline Color as their Fill.
And now both Shapes have New Outline Colors.
So one layer of the Flyer is complete. Next we'll move on to the Images.
Step 12: Royalty Free Clip Art
Next we can add Images. The Royalty Free Vector Clip Art for this Easter Egg Hunt Flyer were downloaded from Clker.
Feel free to download and use 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.
Step 13: Insert Images
Go to the Home Tab and select the Picture Icon from the Objects Group.
You can also find the Picture Icon in the Illustrations Group of the Insert Tab.
Either Icon will open the Insert Picture Window.
Select the Black Bunny and click the Insert button at the bottom of the Window.
The Image will appear with Handles around it for Resizing and Rotation.
You'll see that the Image is quite small and there is also a Picture Tools Format Tab.
In the Size Group set Height to 6.5 Inches and Width to 5.94 Inches.
And now you have a much larger Image to work with.
Then Insert the Easter Basket placing it to the right of the Bunny.
Resize to suit the purpose of the flyer.
