Microsoft Office Valentine’s Day Collection
Even though a lot of us are still “recovering” from the Christmas holidays, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. The current economic situation may be causing many to groan at this statement. While still not be quite as commercial as Christmas, many people exchange cards and gifts on this special day.
Instead of cutting back entirely on cards and projects this Valentine’s Day, you can take advantage of some of the free templates available from Microsoft’s Office Online. With these templates, you can create homemade cards, calendars, decorations, and several other fun little items without having to shell out a lot of money. What’s more, most of these designs aren’t amateurish in the least. So, even though you’re saving money, it still looks like you put a lot of time and effort into the creation.
If you’re using Office 2007, templates from Office Online can be downloaded from directly within the Office application you’re using. Those using older versions of Office will need to download templates from the Microsoft web site instead. For more information on how to retrieve these items, see these download instructions.
