    I'm going insane! I've been working on my boarding pass invites and I have a great template to work off of (thanks to everyone on this site and the knot)... but I have 2 frustrations:

    1.) How does everyone download the fonts to see the images?
    (ex. palm trees, hibiscus, etc)
    2.) How do you get the text to overlay on top of the image?

    My main thing right now is I can't get the images downloaded, I'm not quite sure what program to open it with. I've searched and searched all over this board and the knot and I can't find anything that basically tells me point blank on how to do it.


    I've played with everything imaginable and I just dont get it! I'm good at craft projects, but not when it involves the computer! haha
    Please help me girls!!

    When you download the fonts, you need to move the .ttf file to your fonts folder. 99% of the time, it's in C:/Windows/Fonts. Just drag them over from wherever you saved them to when you downloaded them. You'll know they are loaded, because you'll get a pop-up saying "loading 3 (or whatever) fonts."

    You may have to close whatever you're working on and re-open to have the fonts come thru.

    To move the images to the back, right-click on the image, hit "order" and then hit "move to back", or "move backward" if you use backward, you may have to do it several times.

      Hey Becks

      I dont think I quite understand this part. I'm working with the image fonts in "Paint" and the template is in "Word". Both programs dont give me the option of "order" or "move to back" when I right click the mouse.
      Thanks for the advice earlier though about the fonts.. I was able to do that in like 2 minutes! =)

        In word you need to right click on the image and it should bring up the format menu. You want to choose the 3rd tab LAYOUT and select behind text.
