Wedding Clipart

Did you know, that there are all kinds of clipart available - for free - online, which you can use to create all kinds of things for your bridal shower? Clipart is easy to work with, and most of it is free!

First, get online, and go to your favorite search engine. Just type in “bridal shower clipart” (you don’t even need the quotation marks) and see what comes up. You may have to search first for “bridal clipart”. It may depend on the search engine you are using. Take a look at a few of the sites that come up, and see if they have anything that might interest you. For free clipart, you can save it using the following steps:

Right click once on the image
Select “Save Image As….” From the pop up window
Select the folder you want to save the image to, and click “Save”.

That’s all there is to it! So, what can you do with the image, now that you have it on your own PC? Well, first, I would like to give you some ideas – stuff that you can actually do with the clipart!

There are all kinds of free programs and instructions on the internet. For example, if you have a printer and the right kind of printer paper, you can go to many of the printer manufacturer web sites, such as HP (Hewlett Packard) and get directions for how to make iron on transfers. You can use those directions, and the clipart you chose for your bridal shower, and make something – tee shirts, napkins, aprons, potholder, or just about anything that you can iron on an image to! Say you are having a wedding shower with kitchen items as the theme. You could make special decorations to hang up, with pictures of kitchen items that you got from clipart. Or, you want to make the bridal shower invitations? Find some clipart image that you like, or that relates to your bride-to-be, and you place it on the blank card that you plan to print, to make the card exactly as you want it to look. Using bridal shower clipart, you can personalize the shower for the bride-to-be.

So now you have the clipart image saved on your PC. Now what? Well, open a program called PAINT. It is a graphics program that comes pre-loaded on most PC’s. (There are other graphics programs you can use too, if you are familiar with one.) Once PAINT is open, go to the File menu, and select “Open…”. Find the clipart image that you saved on your PC, and select that file to open. Now that the image is loaded into PAINT, you can enlarge it, make it smaller, change the font color, add text to it, cut part of the image out, add something to the image, etc. You can play with the image until it is just like you want it, then save the new image.

You can save money by getting creative and using your PC, if you plan your wedding shower in advance. You will need to allow yourself enough time before the wedding shower, to be able to create some special things like this. It’s fun, cost effective, and, your bride-to-be will be surprised when you have spent time making the bridal shower personal, by choosing images that relate to her!
