In the last article I showed you the Birthday Vouchers I made for my husband. Well here is a picture of the 5 small bars of chocolate I also gave him, I left them around the house for him to find. (My daughter and I were visiting folks so weren’t at home on his birthday).
I used one of the original paper wrappers of the bars of chocolate as a template. In Photoshop Elements (PSE) I created a piece of paper that was the same dimensions and then just dragged digital background paper over the top, till I was happy.
I then measured the original wrapper again to see where I needed to position the words.
Here is a screenshot showing the wrapper before it was printed. However I didn’t print from PSE, I saved the image as a JPEG and then printed 2 to a page in using MS Word. (Btw the cross-hatching on the screen there is just the grid I had on view to help with positioning).
Although I created this one in PSE, it would be as easy to do in something like Word with a coloured text box and some white coloured text on top. Or if you were feeling more adventurous – pull in a digital background (as it is just a picture) into Word and then crop it to the size you want. Then add a clear text box on top of the background and create white text in it.
I made a video (in an article) about putting white text on photos which is the same technique – Click here to view.
