How To Make Your Words Into a Shape Using Microsoft Word

Step 1: Type your text in MS Word. For illustration purposes, I'm doing one of my favorite Michael Buble songs "Crazy Love".


Step 2: Save the document as an image. Highlight your text. Copy and paste into a new Paint file. Save as a .JPEG or .BMP file.  Once you have saved the file as an image, open the image and crop away any white space.


Step 3: Insert your "Auto-Shape" heart in MS Word.


Step 4: Fill the "Auto-Shape" with a your saved picture file from Step 2. Right click your shape> Format AutoShape> In the Colors and Lines tab, select Fill Effects...> Click on the Picture tab> Select Picture...>Find the image you saved of your text>Insert and click "OK">Remove border around the shape by selecting "No Line" on the Colors and Lines tab.



Step 5: Print and enjoy! You can resize your auto-shape heart depending on your intended use of the graphic. Small or large - the text will adjust too!




Hope you enjoyed this little project!
