This Instructable shows how to make an alternative end-of-the-year newsletter of things that you did using a recipe card format.
Step 1: Materials
-Computer with Word Processing Program (I'm using Word)
-Paper Cutter (optional)
Step 2: Planning
Note: I'll be using my truncata project to demonstrate how to do this.
Step 3: Formatting the Card in Word
Go to File->Page Setup.
Change all margins to 0.5".
Go to Insert->Text Box.
Draw Box on Document.
Right Click on the Outline of the Text Box.
Select Format Text Box.
Change Line Dashed and Weight to 0.25pt in the Colors and Lines Tab.
Change Height to 5" and Width to 7" on the Size Tab.
Note: Depending the size of the card you want, you will have to change the height and width appropriately.
Write and format the card to fit within the Text Box.
Click on the Outline of the Text Box.
Hit CTRL+C and then CTRL+V.
Move Both Text Boxes to fit on the page.
Print a test sheet on printer paper to ensure the text boxes fit and you can just barely see the outline of the boxes.
Make adjustments if necessary.
Print the page on Card Stock once you are satisfied.
Step 4: Apply Contact Paper
Cut out the traced Contact Paper.
Peel back a small width of the Contact Paper and apply to one end of the page.
Slowly remove the Contact Paper smoothing it with your hands.
Step 5: Cut Out Cards
Note: A paper cutter may not be adequate, and you may have to use scissors.
Step 6: Alternatives to the Alternative
Add a general "Hey, Folks!" card as the greeting.
