This coming Sunday, February 14, 2021 is Valentine’s Day. Two precious things happen every year at this time:
- Sweethearts give each other a gift of love. Some give chocolates, a special dinner, a dozen roses, or perhaps jewelry. And of course, with the special gift is a special card expressing one’s undying affection for the love of their life.
- Grade school children give each other their classmates a Valentines card and a few candy hearts.

For example, I am sure you know that you can go online and order those dozen roses or find the right box of chocolates. But did you know the template feature in Microsoft Word, Publisher or event PowerPoint can help you create a homemade Valentines cards?
What is a template?
According to Google, a template is “a shaped piece of metal, wood, card, plastic, or other material used as a pattern for processes such as painting, cutting out, shaping or drilling.” See https://www.google.com/search?q=define+template.
According to Wikipedia, the word template, when used in the context of software like Microsoft Word, is “a sample document that has already some details in place;” See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template_(word_processing).
In other words, you can use Excel, Word, PowerPoint, and other Microsoft Office applications to create a spreadsheet, document, presentation, etc. where much of the work has already been done. All you have to do is enter some text and print.
