Decorating Your Microsoft Word: Mac Banner
The next step is to begin creating your banner, adding the text and decorative elements that you want to include on it. You should be using the Home > Font tools for this, and for a really impressive banner that stands out you will need to be setting the font size to be pretty large.
For instance, the banner seen here was created by making the font size as large as possible while staying within the boundaries of the page and using the Font Colour button to make the second word red. You can get a good idea of how many sheets of paper are being used and how the banner will look by holding COMMAND and adjusting the mouse roller or using the Zoom slider in the lower right-hand corner of the window.
Meanwhile the decorative border was created with the Layout > Page Background > Border tool. On the Page Border screen, the Art drop down menu offers many different border images that can be added, and these can be sized using the Width control. The border can be added by clicking OK, and the banner – in this case across three pages – will be ready to print!
You will probably notice that there is a border around each page, but this shouldn’t be a problem – once printed out, you will want to tape together the sheets that comprise the banner, and in doing so will need to overlap each sheet, thus hiding the borders.
All you need to do once printed and taped together is pin the banner up!
