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.
Resize this Duplicate to Height 2.15 Inches and Width 2.69 Inches.
Create 2 Duplicates of the Resized Image.
Move the Images to where they should be on the Flyer.
Create 3 more Duplicates with these Dimensions - Height 1.25 Inches and Width 2.41 Inches. Move them into poistion.
In the Picture Tools Format Tab select the Recolor Icon from the Adjust Group.
From the Recolor Options drop down menu select More Variations.
This opens the Recolor Picture Window.
Click on the Color Box to reveal the Color Menu. Select White.
Click the OK button to see the change.
You have to repeat this step 3 times for the other 3 Flowers that need to be changed to White. Why?
If you select Multiple Images, the Recolor Icon in the Adjust Group becomes disabled.
Your Flyer should look something like this.
The Title Font is called Days by Alexander Kalachev.
You can download both Free Fonts from Fontsquirrel.com.
For a newly downloaded Font to be usable on your machine, you must first install it. Any Font installed while Microsoft Publisher is open, will not be visible in the Font List.
To correct this, you must first restart the Microsoft Publisher program after Font(s) installation.
For more information on Fonts and how to properly install them, visit the FlyerTutor Blog.
To Insert Text you can select the Draw Text Box Icon from the Objects Group of the Home Tab.
You can also find this Draw Text Box Icon in the Text Group of the Insert Tab.
Drag and draw a Text Box on the Flyer. You'll see a Flashing Cursor. Type the word "Happy". The Text will be very small. Double click over it to select it. You'll notice 2 Format Tabs.
Select the Text Box Tools Format Tab. In the Font Group select the Down Arrow on the right side of the Font Box, and select the Days Font from the Font List.
Next to the Font Box is Font Size. Type in 40 and hit your Enter Key. See the change made to the Text.
Unfortunately there is no Glow Effect in Microsoft Publisher. To get more attractive Text here we would have to use WordArt.
So we just need to change the Text Color by clicking the Arrow to the right of the Font Color Icon from the Font Group.
This opens a Color Menu from which you should select any one of the 3 Colors used for the Flyer background.
The Text Fill changes to the selected Color.
Type the remaining Title Text in separate Text Boxes and change their Fill Colors.
If the Text Box is too close to the one above it, some of the Text will disappear.
Use your Arrow Keys to make sure there is enough space between them.
Move the bottom 2 Text Boxes to the right to give the Text the stepped appearance.
As you type, in both cases you'll notice that the Text is Aligned Left.
In the Text Box Tools Format Tab select the Align Center Icon from the Alignment Group.
Your Centered Text should look like this.
Go to the Home Tab and select the Line Spacing Icon from the Paragraph Group.
A drop down menu appears. Select Line Spacing Options.
This opens the Paragraph Window.
In the Line Spacing section of the Indents and Spacing Tab, set Between Lines to 0.69sp and click OK.
The Text is closer now.
And there you have it. You've created this simple but beautiful Mother's Day Flyer 3 using Microsoft Publisher.
All that's left to do is Save the File.
This opens the Save As Window where you can select the location of your file, give it a File Name and click the Save button.
If you are new to Microsoft Publisher, I hope this tutorial shed some light on some of the many functions of the Microsoft Publisher Interface.
