Creating Mirrored Text

I’m always looking for new and different things to make my cards more fun. Check out this idea! Mirrored text in Word. (I provide step-by-step details below.) Here’s my example.

I usually print this on copy paper and trim it to fit inside my card as a liner. Sometimes, I print it out on cardstock and use it as a sentiment tag on the front of a card. My printer will print on cardstock by feeding one sheet at a time by hand. Here are my instructions. I tried to give very specific instructions. If I have not been clear enough, just leave a comment with your question, and I’ll see if I can help.

  • open a new, blank document in Word
  • click on ‘insert’
  • click on ‘text box’
  • click on ‘simple text box’
  • edit text to your chosen sentiment
  • make sure text box is highlighted
  • click ‘shape format’ on top menu
  • right-click on text box
  • click ‘format shape’ at bottom of drop-down menu
  • click on ‘shape options’ on menu that shows up on right
  • click on ‘effects’
  • click on ‘3D Rotations’
  • under ‘presets,’ change 0 to 180 on ‘X rotation’ line
  • save and print as desired

Enjoy! I can’t wait to see what you create. Thanks so much for stopping in today.

May the Lord be glorified by the work of my hands, Pamela

Welcome to My New Blog

Thanks so much for stopping by my new blog. I’ll be posting my writing and cardmaking here soon. I’m working to get everything moved over from my other blog I’ve so much to learn about this new site I’m working through. I ask for patience and welcome any comments for improvements and things you like or don’t like. Here’s a copy of my Christmas card from this year to keep you busy while I continue to learn. Hope you have a wonderful day, Pamela
