How to Make Formal Certificate of Appreciation Award with MS Word

all right thanks so much for joining so

now I'm going to show you how you can

create a little bit more of a formal

certificate of appreciation rather than

the certificate of achievement that I

created for the sports team um and we

use this to thank our vendors for

donating to our school for various

events so I do have a number of other

videos on my channel in terms of

creating a certificate of achievements

Sante tags candy wrapper labels please

feel free to watch any and all of my

videos subscribe to my channel and or

like this video if you did find it

useful

alright so to create this the very first

thing we're going to want to do is go to

file new blank document we want to go to

page layout and we want to go to

orientation and landscape and we want to

change our margins to narrow and this

just gives it a little bit more real

estate to work with very next thing

we're going to do is go up to a browser

and I think Google if you want to use

Bing or Yahoo any other search engine

feel free and type in certificate border

and then you can click on images and

there's a myriad of borders that you can

use here on the one that I went ahead

and downloaded and used is right here so

we can go ahead and click on that and

then if we right-click we can do save

picture as certificate board or template

forward and that's what we want and we

went ahead and save that so now I want

to go to document 5 or our new documents

and we want to click on insert picture

and we want to insert or a border that

we just downloaded so from here if you

try to move this around you can see so

what you want to do is either click in

here for layout options and click in

front of text or you can right click and

do wrap text in front of text and now we

can very easily move this picture around

um I went to the dollar store and

purchase certificate frames for $1.00 if

you can believe it

and I measured the inside of the frame

so I know that I want the end of the

border to fit in a seven point seven

five by ten point two five and that is

going to fit pretty perfectly in the

frame that I purchased so what I want to

do is just make this slightly smaller

and I can see up here on the exact

dimensions so I can go ahead and see

this is seven point seven five by ten

point two four should fit by it's just

one pixel off okay and again you can see

that by clicking on format and the width

and height of the shape okay so now you

want to go ahead and click that till you

see that little green X and you know

that centered in the middle of the paper

okay next thing I want to point out is

our school colors are blue and white so

we want to change the border instead of

the green we want to make it blue so we

want to go ahead and click on format' we

want to click on color and we want to

click on this blue or we could click on

this blue okay and now we have our blue

border okay now we want to write in our

certificate of appreciation so we are

going to insert a text box and we're

going to draw a text box

okay and we obviously don't want this

sort of white text box to be in here so

we want to click on format we want to do

a shape fill of no fill and a shape

outline of no outline and click on no

outline and the shape fill of no fill

okay so from here we want to type in

certificate patient

hmm and we can go ahead and highlight

that click on Home Center that and we

want to right-click and actually spell

appreciation correctly highlight that

and we want to put in our certificate

font now if you do not have a

certificate mark on your laptop or your

computer please download and install the

certificate font it's free there's a

myriad of font size out there that have

that if you don't know how to do that I

have a video on fonts fonts and more

fonts on downloading and installing and

searching for fonts so again this is the

certificate fonts and then from here we

want to click on format and we want to

click on text effects and we want to

transform and we want to arch up okay

and that looks about right based on the

text box you can play with the text box

in terms of the arches by this holding

onto this pink square in the middle or

you can make this bigger or smaller via

sort of the text box but this is pretty

perfect for what we want okay next thing

we want to do is insert another text box

and we want to draw that right there you

want to Center that and we are going to

format this and do a shape fill of no

fill and a shape outline

no outline all right this certificate is

assented to : and we want to spell

presented right and we want to go to

home and we want to center that and then

we could just do a new line and run

right get city pizza

it was fantastic to work with and we

want to use the casteller font and this

is size 48 and we can make this bigger

so it fits on one line Center that and

we can just do a couple inserts there

and we want to make this an 18 point

fonts okay and then finally we can use

this same text box and we want to make

this a 24 point font and we are going to

use California that's B and we're going

to write in appreciation or which is

easy is t1 trees 2002

all right clearly we have a lot of

spelling

trees sun night there we go and we can

make that bigger there we go so if it's

on two lines and we can once again

Center that okay and we do want to

highlight this text and we want to make

that italicized

there we go all right now finally if we

go back here all we need to do is the

presented by East Gate Elementary and

then our two logos so from here we can

go ahead and do an insert text box draw

a text box and we could write easiness

and bye :

and again we want to make this

California FB italicize and this is an

18 point font and we want to take this

text box obviously make do that format

and do a shape fill of no fill and a

shape outline of no outline and again

that was pre-selected because that was

my last that you do shape fill of no

fill and a shape outline of no outline

and then from here we can just do the

underscore to get that line

alternatively we could have absolutely

did an insert shape and insert a line

but the underline is just as easy

and again the underline is holding down

the shift key and pressing the underline

next to the zero from here we can right

click and do a copy do a couple spaces

right click and do a paste and then from

here we can just add some spaces and

then we can do a

correct East gates oh please

CTA Louisville chair Therese

carnival chair and we want to highlight

this and we want to go to home and we

want to make this a 14 point font and

that is italicized and look at this

interesting some spaces and we want to

highlight this and we can right-click

and say copy and we can do once again a

paste and we can just move all this down

all right finally all we need to do is

put in our jet city pizza and or East

Gate Elementary so we can go back here

and write in gypsy pizza and we can

click on images and we can click on here

and we can right-click and do a save

picture as logo which is just two three

just so we know and then we can go ahead

and type in east gate

QTA

and we can click on images and we can

right click and do save picture as and

we get taken ok now we can go back to

our certificate and we can do a we want

to click outside to be sure nothing is

selected because if we have a shape or a

image selected and we do an insert while

that shape or image selected a lot of

times it will insert on top of the shape

so it will delete the current shape and

insert the new shape so we want to do an

insert picture and let's do our Eastgate

logo and what we want to do is go to

layout options and do in front of text

and the reason why that was there was

because it was being put behind that

image so again we want to say in front

of text ok and then we want to do an

insert picture and let's do our jet City

Pizza logo 3 and once again we want to

click in front of text and then from

here we can make this smaller just by

dragging and dropping

and we want to make that sort of a line

there and that's it that's how you can

very easily create this more formal

certificate of appreciation using

nothing but Microsoft Word in a browser
