How to layer Digi Stamps in Word

This digi stamp was originally offered as a freebie, but only for a limited time. View Cupcakes Digital Stamp in the Tiffany Doodles Digital Stamp Store!  Be sure to upload your TD digi stamp project to our Tiffany Doodles Flickr Group Gallery! It may be used as an example in the Tiffany Doodles Store!
Be sure to show me what you make with it!

So you have these cute images to build your own cupcake but not sure how to layer them in Word?  Well, it quite simple actually!  Just follow these steps! (click the images to view larger)
Open a new Word document and 'Insert Picture from File'.  This is where you will insert the un-decorated cupcake!
With the image still selected click on 'Text Wrapping' and then choose 'Behind Text'. (pic below)
Next, insert another image - let's choose the sprinkles!  Do the same step as above 'Text Wrapping' and choose "Behind Text'. (pic below)

Now, you can click on the sprinkles and move them into position with your mouse.  As long as the image is selected you can just nudge them using your arrow keys for precise positioning! (pic below)

Now, lets add a toothpick flag!  Repeat the steps just like above: Insert Picture, text wrapping, behind text. (pic below)


With your mouse and arrow keys, move it into position where you want it! (pic below)

You could be done with your image now! But, what if you wanted to add another toothpick flag and place it on the other side? Well, b/c of the way it leans it wouldn't fit right so what we need to do is rotate it to the left! Just insert the next pic and repeat the steps above.  Now, grab that green knob on the top of the image and rotate it until you like it! (pic below)

All done! You are ready to print and color!!  Let me know if this tutorial was helpful!!

Thanks for the image and tutorial. I don't know if I have an older version of Word, but initially I had a hard time trying to find text wrap. After some playing around, I was able to put together the cupcake. Amazing. I saved the image to use later.
