I am trying to print out a bathroom basket poem on the computer with a fancy border. I have a 8×10 frame to put it in. I also have to do a poem for our wishing jar. It seems so simple, but when I use clip art to paste the border on the paper in word, it won’t let me print inside the border. Can anyone help me? I also need to do hankie poems on paper for our parents (I bought hankercheifs and am getting them embroidered). Not sure how to format those so they print out on paper small like 4×6 cards. Thanks for any help you can give! Oh, one last thing, what have you all used to keep track of people’s addresses and responses? I was going to use spreadsheet but cant get the gridelines to show when I print. AHHHHHH! 🙂

Double click on your image and you should get a box of formatting options. In one of the tabs there’s the option to send the image behind text (I think there’s a picture of a dog on it). Once you do that you can format text like normal.

or the low tech way, print the boarder, then reset your margins, insert the poem and print the poem onto the same paper. or make a border out of scrapbooking paper.
mind sharing what your poem is?

Thanks for the tips ladies. These are my two poems:
Please leave us a note,
please drop us a line,
add advice on marriage,
to stand the test of time
From each of your experiences comes a very special gift,
A piece of hidden knowledge that we didn’t know exists.
Please share with us your wisdom about marriage, love and life;
How to be a loving husband, or to be the perfect wife.
For the greatest gift of all is the gift of your advice.
So happy you’re here to share in our special day,
but should something happen to go astray.
Please help yourself to the contents within,
Wet wipe, hand lotion, and even aspirin,
Use only what you need and leave the rest,
It may also be useful to another guest,
So repair the damage that may have been done,
Then hurry on back and join in the fun!

Powerpoint and Publisher (both included in Office) are both easier to use when you want to format both text and pictures. They give you a lot more freedom to move things around – Word always wants to “snap” things into place. And I know in both of those (but maybe Word too), you can set your own paper size. Check file->page setup for that.
Or thefiancemeenah had a great easy solution if you just need to make a couple things. Or I’m not sure how you’re trying to put the text in, but if it’s on top of a picture, you’d have to use a text box (in the drawing tools area).
