It always seems to me that other people's homes are fancier than mine. In my defense, fancy things are allergic to children and my house has got 'em bad. The children, that is. But just because my home is perpetually finger-printed and cheese cracker crumbed, that doesn't mean I should give up trying to make something pretty.
For Thanksgiving, I decided to make a menu card to display for our guests. I used Microsoft Word and it took about ten minutes-- well worth it. Here's the oh-so-easy steps:
1. Open up a word document.
2. Click the 'insert' tab and choose "shape".
3. Pick a shape. The way I did it was to pick a shape and then repeat, putting the second one inside the first, creating a frame.
5. Insert text boxes in the center, preparing for your menu items. At this point, it's easiest to leave the line around the boxes so you can see where you're lining them up. At the end, we'll remove them.
8. Choose 'no line'.
