How to Make Your Own Scratch Off Tickets

Save

Though scratch-off cards are commonly used for lottery purposes, they are also used in raffle, fund-raising and other promotional events. To make a DIY scratch-off card, you can create the card design in Microsoft Word, print your design on card stock, and place the scratch-off labels on top of the text or images in your design. Scratch-off labels are very inexpensive and can be purchased on a variety of websites.

Things You'll Need

  • Card stock
  • Scratch-off labels
  • Go to "Start" and click on "All Programs." Next, click on the "Microsoft Office" folder and launch Microsoft Word.

  • Click on the round Microsoft Office button and select "New." A list of available templates will appear on the left side of the screen.

  • Click on the "Cards" link and select a compatible template for your scratch-off design, such as "Note Cards."

  • Scroll through the list of available template designs and double-click on your preferred template.

  • Type your message inside the text box on the template. Click on the "Insert" tab if you would like to add a digital image to your design. You can insert clip-art or a digital image from your computer by clicking on the "Picture" or "Clip Art" icons.

  • Experiment with the style, color and size of your text by clicking on the font options in the toolbar. If you plan to place the small scratch-off label on top of a portion of your text, reduce the text size to 8- or 9-point font. If you are placing a scratch-off label on top of a graphic, reduce the size of the image. You can resize the image by clicking and dragging the corners of the image.

  • Save and print your new scratch-off design.

  • Place the small scratch-off labels on top of your preferred text or graphic. Depending on the size of your scratch-off labels, you may need to experiment with the design in MS Word.
