How to Make a Booklet Using Word 2007


Word 2007 provides the tools and features to create a variety of specific documents, such as folded booklets. You can make booklets for event programs, menus and invitations. To begin, set up the page margins for a booklet using the book fold option. The book fold automatically sets a wide gutter and large margins made for a document with a center fold. Add text and graphics, formatting the booklet as needed. Finally, print out the booklet on both sides of the paper.
