How to Create the Christmas Angel Invitations in Microsoft Word & Works
To begin creating Christmas Angel invitations, you will need to load the word processor you are going to use. This can be Works or Word. Loading your word processor will load a new page for you to work on.
You can then apply a page border to your invitation for decoration. The page borders are found in the Format menu. Next, you can type the text for your invitation and change the text settings to what you want.
When you are ready to insert graphics, you can do so by clicking the Insert > Picture > From File at the top of the window. You can then select the Christmas Angel graphic or graphics you want to use and open them. Drag the graphic with your mouse to where you want it.
If you chose to use Christmas Angel dingbats, you can type all the letters on your keyboard and change the font to the dingbat you installed. You will see the dingbats instead of the letters. Delete the dingbats that you do not want to use. You can also change the dingbat’s color and size.
When you are finished creating your Christmas Angel invitation, you can print the invitation. Only print one invitation to see what it will look like. If everything looks right, print as many as you want.
