Tutorial: How to make editable PDF files for printables & free 'World Domination' to-do list downloads
I get a lot of questions about how I make my editable PDF files for invitations, labels and other party goods. I'll be honest, I haven't been that open about how to make them - not because I don't want to share, but going through writing a how-to for each person and answering all the questions can be incredibly time consuming. So, I've decided to put together a tutorial for anyone who is interested. Post any questions you have below and I'll answer them all in one place for everyone to see!
As always I've used Google Docs for my file hosting so once you click the link go to the top right of your document and click File; Download Original, or there is a button named "Download" on the top right. Then go ahead and open your document, print, read, or edit as you like.
Without further ado, download the complete tutorial here.
I've made a to-do list/goals worksheet for you to work on as a sample - both versions are available at the end of the tutorial.
Not interested in the tutorial? That's ok! Go ahead and download the free worksheet in one of two formats:
Completely blank (no editable fields)
Or with editable fields. Remember, like all of my files - you might need to download a font if you want it to look exactly like the sample you see. In this case the font is "Jenna Sue" and you can get your copy here - do ahead and download and install it, then re-open the PDF and you'll be all set.
Again - let me know any and all of your questions below and I'll answer to the best of my ability. Otherwise, happy PDF making!
