Then go to the Illustrations Group of the Insert Tab and select Picture.
It opens up the Insert Picture Window, where you can select your file and then click Insert.
The Ribbon will change to the Format Tab once the image has been inserted.
In the Size Group change the image Height and Width to 2.55".
Remove the Outline of the Text Box.
This is how the Flyer should be coming along thus far.
Center the Text by clicking on the Center Icon in the Paragraph Group.
Again, remove Outlines.
Again, remove Outlines. You can hold down your Ctrl Key to select multiple objects at once so that you don't have to repeat this step 5 times.
That would make the design process a bit longer than it needs to be.
Now all that's left to do is add the Stars to this Flyer and it will be complete.
The Star will be in the Stars and Banners Section.
Just click where you want to place the Star and it will appear, however the size will be bigger than we need.
Set the Height and Width of the Star in the Size Group to 0.6".
Change the Star Color to our previously used Red or Blue and set its Outline to White.
In the Shape Styles Group of the Format Tab select Shape Effects from the Shape Styles Group.
This opens a drop down menu with different Shape Effects.
Move your cursor over the Glow Effect.
This in turn opens a pop up menu with different Glow Options.
Select Glow Options at the bottom of this menu.
This opens a Format Shape Window.
In the Glow Section of Glow and Soft Edges, click on the Presets Icon.
Select the 1st Icon of the Glow Variations Section (Blue, 5pt glow, Accent color 1). Click the Color Icon in the Glow Section of Glow and Soft Edges and select the Gray Color which Microsoft calls White (White, Background 1, Darker 15%).
Set Size to 3pt and Transparency to 50%. In the Soft Edges Section set Size to 1pt.
Then click Close.
Here you can see the changes made to the Star.
Repeat Step 06 and create 6 Duplicates.
Move the Stars into the desired location on the flyer.
The last duplicate will be changed to Blue.
Create 4 Duplicates.
Move the Stars into place, leaving one behind to change to White.
For the last Star, set its Fill to White and its Outline to Red.
Notice that changing the Outline Color makes the Star appear to loose its Glow.
The Glow is still there, however, the Red Outline makes it harder to see.
Create 4 Duplicates and move into position.
There you have it, a beautiful 4th of July Independence Day Flyer created with Microsoft Word 2010.
This opens the Save As Window.
Select the location for your file, give it a File Name and click Save.
If you are new to Microsoft Word, I hope this tutorial shed some light on some of the many functions of the Microsoft Word Interface.
