I’m trying to make Tears of Joy packets, and I’m running into a problem getting the paper for the front. I need each piece to be a certain size, and when I print the words ‘For your tears of joy’ I can’t get them all cut so the words are centered in each square of paper…..I hope this is making sense so far! Is there a way I can make columns or multiple text boxes with lines as a cutting guide? Then I can print the guide lines on the back of the page, and the words on the front, so when they are cut they are centered and the same size……anyone!?

Try creating a table and use the “borders & shading” tab to mark the outlines.

In my version of word I go to “page layout”, then “columns”, and then “more columns”. You can then choose how many columns you want, and there is a box to check if you want lines in between them.

Or you could make text boxes and center the words in them. Then you can cut out the boxes.

Thanks ladies! I’m gonna try all of those! I usually just play around till I figure it out, but with so many projects on the go, I’m getting sick of so much trial and error!

What version of word are you using?

Word 2010. I made a sized text box, printed them empty, added mt text, then erased the lines, and printed the other side of the paper. Worked perfectly! Makes it so u can’t see the extra lines on the good side. Thanks for all the help ladies!

You can also create a table and put each letter in a separate box. You can change the color of the line to grey so that it’s faint, but allows you to cut around it.
