Microsoft Publisher offers templates for kids. These templates consist of different paper folding projects like airplanes, boats, cups, and more. Kids will really enjoy printing these paper projects and creating their project. In this tutorial, I will show you how to open these templates and how to use them. To begin, you will need to open Microsoft Publisher and let it load.
Opening Your Paper Project Templates in Microsoft Publisher
Your first step is to open the paper project templates. Under the Publication Type panel, you will see a list of template categories. You will need to look through them and find the Paper Folding Projects link. Once you find it, click it. That will load the different paper folding projects in the middle panel.
Selecting and Opening Your Paper Folding Project Template
Now that you have selected the paper folding projects category, you will need to select the project you want to create. Once you select your project, you can edit some of the options in the far right panel. You can drop the color scheme box down and select the color scheme you want to use. Then you can change the font scheme if you plan to type instructions on the project. When you are finished, you will need to click the Create button to open the project in a new window.
Editing Your Paper Folding Project
You can now edit the paper folding project. You can insert clipart and text. To insert text, click on a text field, if there is one, and delete the text. Then type what you want in the text field. If the paper template does not have a text field and you want to add one, click Insert > Text Box. Then move the box to where you want and type what you want in the box.
If you want to insert clipart, go to the top of your window and click Insert > Picture > Clipart. The clipart box will open in the panel on the left. Click the Go button and the clipart will load. Double click the clipart that you want to insert and it will be inserted into the center of your project. Grab the clipart with your mouse and drag it to where you want it.
When you are finished with the paper folding project, you can save it to your computer and then print it. If you are planning to print out more than one copy of the paper project, you may want to print one copy first and see how it will turn out. Then you can print your other copies if everything is okay. If you are using clipart and text, you may have to adjust it to make it look correctly.
