e-Patterns Central oladham Make Your Last Minute Holiday Cards with Microsoft Word :: Mysti So the presents are wrapped, but all of your family members are coming over in a few days and you didn’t pick out nice cards… but never fear, you can whip out Microsoft Word and impress the relatives with a customized card for each person, or just go with the generic standby for everybody. Note: You can print off cards on regular paper if you want, but they won’t look quite as nice – best to grab some greeting card paper from the local office supply store. I’ve always used Avery, but there are lots of brands to choose from. Using Word 2007 You might be surprised, but Word 2007 has a lot of options for making quality holiday cards, and is a fairly easy process.

This should connect to Microsoft’s Office Online site, which has loads of templates to choose from, or you could go directly to the site in your browser and download them there.

Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories - Edge-Lit Holiday Cards Make your own edge-lit holiday cards using LEDs, plastic, paper, electrical tape, batteries, a pen, scissors, and a hobby knife. We begin with a piece of clear plastic roughly 1/16″ (1.6 mm) thick, approximately 2.5 x 3″ (65 x 75 mm). We used acrylic, but you can also use polycarbonate, polypropylene, or a number of other clear plastics. You can cut a piece out of a thick-walled clear plastic container or get material like this at the hardware or hobby store. This clear acrylic came with protective blue film on both sides. The initial sheet that we had was about 12″ square, and it turns out that this particular material *cannot* be cut with scissors– it cracks and shatters. Trace the size of your plastic piece onto a sheet of paper. Make a drawing of what you’ll want on your card front; it should fit well within the inner rectangle on your paper. Obviously, how cool your shape looks will influence how cool the final product looks. And here is the design scratched into the plastic.
