How to Make Easy Page Borders in Microsoft Word!

This week's technology tutorial is something that is easy but SO awesome!  I have to give a big shout out to my friend Katie for showing my this one!  She's one of my lovely co-workers and has the most amazing ideas!  And she absolutely needs to start a blog!  (Hint, hint!!!)  :)




This tutorial was by far the most popular on the poll this week! 


Before I start the tutorial, I just want to take a quick moment to think about all the lives that were lost eleven years ago today.  Being from NY (north of the city), the attack really hit close to home.  Two weekends ago I went down to the city and saw some of the new towers that they're building.  They're absolutely amazing, but it's unfortunate to think of the events that led us to the new construction. 

I'm sure you already have already, but just take a moment to think about the lives that were lost.



Now, here's the tutorial for the week...





You can download this tutorial as a PDF by clicking this picture!
Note: This tutorial is hosted on Google Docs.  To save it from there, just open the file and click File > Download to save onto your computer!

For next week's poll, I'm going to add how to use both portrait and landscape lines in PowerPoint.  Be sure to vote!

    1. No problem! I don't know there were more pictures in art until my friend Katie showed me... It definitely makes all the difference!

    1. It's so true! It's such a powerful program, but some of the best things about it are hidden!

  3. I've always used page borders in Word, but struggle with the right margin that always seems to cut off when I print, unless I pdf the document. Even when changing the margins, this seems to happen. Do you know the answer?
    Many thanks,

    1. That may have to do with the area of your printer that allows you to print. Mine seems to be a quarter inch on each side, anything over that will get cut off. Usually when it the page borders I leave the margins at 1" each. That seems to get it to print okay for me.

      I'm sorry I couldn't be more help with this one!

  5. Do you know if you can print from Word, Power Point, or a PDF in a larger size than the 8 1/2 X 11? I'd like to print out more of a poster size by taping 4 pieces of paper together but I'm not sure if this is possible. Would love any insights you may provide! :)
    Also, do you know how to capture/copy the Voki image to paste into a word document/labels, etc.?
    Thanks so much for all the great tips! :)

    1. There is a way to do it on some printers, but not others. I'll try to see if there's a generic way to add it to my blog but I'm thinking it may differ too much from printer to printer.

      Hopefully one day soon the option on my poll to take a screenshot of your computer screen will come up since that will allow you to capture the Voki image! Stay tuned for that!

  8. Hello,
    I run a free teaching resources website with my boyfriend called Early Learning HQ. We have lots of themed page borders if you are having trouble making them :). http://www.earlylearninghq.org.uk/editable-resources-2/editable-page-borders/

    If you like them, would you consider linking to our page? We make all the resources in a very small team and it would be nice to share them with more people :).

    Thanks,
    Abby
