Open this with Microsoft Office Word 2007 or higher.

Search google images for a background picture such as "polka dots". Open it to full size image then right click save image as and save it somewhere on your computer.

Next go to Pick a great font. I like BAMBI BOLD and if you want the finished template for free I will send you, you must have this font. When you find it on, then click download. I did mine in Firefox, so these are the instructions for firefox only. Click download then in the downloads window, click the font. You will be prompted to open with winzip, if you do not have it, it will let you use the evaluation version. click use evaluation version. then click the file with ttf beside it and hit extract. Extract the files to your desktop. Open your C:windows file then open the fonts file. Click on the ttf files on your desktop and drag and drop into your fonts folder. TADA! Thousands of free fonts can be installed this way.

Now on to the templates.

You have cool Google images saved and cool fonts downloaded!

Open my template click on the first circle. There should be an orange tab in the middle of tool bar that says text box tools click it then click format shape fill click picture. add your google image and that is the background in your circle now! Then right click the circle click add text change font type and color and add whatever letter you wish! Yay free bottle caps for everyone.
i can't figure out how to get the images onto the circles, we have microsoft, any ideas? thanks! excited to be able to make some my daughter will enjoy
