Open up Microsoft Word ( or pages for you Mac users), and open up page set up ( through the File menu) then click on paper size. Change the page orientation to landscape. Make A textbox that is a little bigger than 3x5 ( or the size of Index or Card stock you're using)

Print that sheet of paper off, and grab your tape. Make a tape circle and put it in the middle of the rectangle. Place your card face up on the side you want printed ( in other words, if you want the blank side printed on, put that side face up) load it in your printing tray upside down so if you have the box in the top left of the paper ( face up) you would put it in the tray face down with the box in the lower left hand corner.

Step 4: Get Your Words
