How to Create your Own Reborn Birth Certificate
How to Make a Reborn Doll Birth Certificate?The easiest way to make a reborn doll birth certificate is using Microsoft Works or even Microsoft Word. Launch either software and go to the “Create a New Project/File” option and select the “Templates” option. Here you will find a plethora of ready-made Templates under the “Certificates” head in the “Cards and Crafts” option. Select the “Certificates” option.
Browse through the available templates and choose one that you like best. Remember you can always change the graphics and text on the templates, so focus on finding a good layout at this point. Once you have found a template you like, download it to your computer. Once the download is finished a new project or file should open in the template format.
Include the following information in the Template by double-clicking on each field and changing the default text or by adding new text boxes.
Title – “BIRTH CERTIFICATE”
City & State –
You can edit the font style, size, coloring etc. as you normally would edit documents in a word processor.
Now, find a graphic that matches the theme of this certificate and incorporate it in. You can either search some of the popular free stock photo sites out there for baby themed or reborn doll themed pictures or you can download some graphics for a fee.
Print out the reborn doll’s birth certificate on cardstock or glossy or matte finished photo paper and get it framed and voila! You are done!
