How do I reverse-print text for hand cutting?

The key to effective hand cutting is getting a backward print of the text you want to cut out. Follow our directions for using Microsoft Word, or adapt them to fit your word-processing program.

1. Choose the Drawing toolbar from the View menu. Click on the WordArt option (blue slanted letter "A").

2. Select the default style of WordArt (outline). Choose your font and type the title. Click OK. Adjust the size of your type by dragging the corners of the text box.

3. Select the Draw option (usually the first item in the Drawing toolbar), click Rotate or Flip, and then pick Flip Horizontal.

4. Make any final size adjustments and print. Print the text on the back of your paper or cardstock so it will be correct once you print.
