Pretty paper makes things better


Pen paling. I love pen paling. There only seems to be one problem...all my pen pal partners seem to have beautiful stationery whereas I...don't. Hahaha. I don't want them to get robbed of pretty paper so I decided to use PPbNdesigns images and make special stationery for my pen pals. 

This is what it looks like...
 

Isn't it just so sweet?!?! Yeah I thought so too. Here is how you can make your own stationery quickly and keep it for future editing and adding in new Designs. 

1.) Go on over to PPbNdesigns and on the left hand side click on "borders and banners" Select the banner you would like to use in your project add it to your cart and download it right onto your desktop. (I normally keep a seperate area on my desktop for PPBN files) however for this I would suggest keeping it on your desktop initially. Easier to find
*Be sure you extract all the files by right clicking on the icon that has now downloaded onto your computer and select extract all. 

2.) open up a word document. 
3.) on the top select insert, picture, from file, desktop, "ppbn file" then select the JPEG of your desired image. 
4.) this being the most difficult part you will need to click on the image and using the box on the right hand bottom corner make the image the size of your preference. 

Optional: add some lines and another image to the bottom. 

5.) print out and voila you have some pretty paper. 

I reapplied the same steps to make an envelope. Super fun. 

I hope this helps some of you to create pretty paper. Please don't hesitate to write a comment or email me if you have any questions or need help with the steps.
 
Have a happy summer friends.
