A few weeks ago, I showed you how to open one of my digital designs and add text to it using Microsoft Word. Today, I wanted to go one step further and give you 2 options for manipulating the text, so you can place it exactly where you want to on the page.
This particular tutorial showcases a set of Frozen food & drink labels I used for my daughter’s 5th birthday last year. I will leave a set of quick steps you can reference below if you are not into watching videos!
How to Add Text & Manipulate Text (Word Art) in Microsoft Word
- Open a New Blank Word Document
- Insert > Picture (and select the file you wish to open)
- To adjust the margins: Page Layout Tab > Margins > Select Narrow (1/2 inch)
- Crop white space border if needed
- Resize the image to fill the page if needed
- Insert > Word Art (and select the style you wish to use or just the basic, which you can add your own effects to later)
- Type your text in the Word Art Box
- Change the font style, color, and size
- Right Click on the Text Box and choose FONT > Select the Advanced Tab > Adjust the Spacing or Kerning as you see fit
- Right Click again and choose PARAGRAPH > Adjust the Line Spacing
- I recommend starting with 0.8 to reduce the large gaps/white space between lines
- Save and Print!!!

In the upcoming week the Frozen Banner printable files will be available here, along with the Silhouette studio cut files for the extra bling effect!
