1. Trailer: Okay. 2. Bookmarks: Hello and welcome to today's tutorial. Today we're going to be learning how to make four different bookmarks and Canvas. The first thing that you are going to want to do is read a Canvas account. And once you get to the Canvas website, you can either click sign up and you can sign up with your email. And you have to create a password. Or if you already have an account, you can go ahead and log in. So when you're logged in, your Canvas account is going to look a little different than mine. I have used Canvas before, so I'm going to have some designs in here, but this is the general feeling of Canva. It's really cool about Canvas that they have a whole bunch of different templates that you can use. You can create a custom size design. But today what we are going to do is we are going to search for a template for a bookmark. So I'm going to go ahead and type in bookmark in the search bar. And I'll give us a whole bunch of fun templates. But I'm going to go ahead and click create a blank bookmark. So this is what Canvas looks like. We have a menu right here where you can find templates. You can upload different images if you want. There are photos. There's different elements you can use. There's text, music if you're creating a video, have various videos. If you were creating a longer video and they have backgrounds. So what we're going to do is we're going to go ahead and we're going to make a Harry Potter inspired bookmark. So we're going to go over to the photos tab and we're going to search for parchment. And once we have searched for it, there's going to be a whole bunch of different options. Now because we are using a free account, we can only use the ones that say free and not the ones with the crown next to it that says Pro. So I really like this parchment. What I'm going to do is I'm going to drag and drop it over here. And then I'm going to drag it by the corner right here. The first I want to do is I want to rotate it 90 degrees and I'm going to drag it and I'm going to make it really big. You can also use these little tabs to make it really big. So this is the background of my Bookmark. And I'm going to click on it. I'm going to click on it. They have different options here, but I'm going to go over to Filter and I'm going to do grayscale so that it'll be black and white. Because I don't have a color printer. I wanted to make something that was black and white though would look cool when I printed it out. Now I'm going to go over to the Elements tab, and I'm going to search for a lightning bolt. Oops, I did not spell that, right. There's a whole bunch of different options and we can't use the ones with the Pro. But I really like this one and I'm going to click it and it'll put it right in here. And I'm going to just drag it up with my mouse. And then I'm going to go over to this little color box. And if you click on it, you can change the color of your lightning bolt. So I wanted it to be black, but you can do any color you want. If you wanted it, purple or blue. You can choose any color you want. And if you go over to this little color wheel thing, you can drag it around and you can create any color you want. But for me today, I don't want it to be black. So that is what our bookmark looks like so far. And then I think I want glasses. So I'm going to search for glasses and I'm want to find a free one. And I really like these because they look like Harry Potter glasses. I think. I think these look like Harry Potter glasses. And what I'm going to do is I'm just going to make it larger by hovering over the corner and dragging it out. If you want to make it smaller, you can drag it in. And I want them to kinda go off the page so that it looks like there is glasses on there. And I also want that to be black. And that is what I want my bookmark to look like. It's a simple bookmark, but it would be so cool once it's printed out and you can put it in. If you're reading Harry Potter any book. This would be a really fun gift idea. If you were giving a book, you can make a custom bookmark for a friend or a relative. So we have this, which looks really cool. We're going to click Add a page. And we're going to make a new bookmark. And for this one, I think I want to make a flower bookmark. So I'm going to search for flowers. And I really like this one, so I'm going to click on it and you can't see it too well on the white background. So I'm going to change the background of my bookmarks. All you have to do is click on the background and it highlights this whole square. And if you go over to this background color, you can pick any color you want. Canvas will also pull colors from the image. So I really like this turquoise color from the flower, and I think I'm gonna make that my background. So I really like this flower. And you can see that it also made these magic recommendations. And I really like this flower. And what other flowers do they have? This one's really pretty too. Those are some really pretty flowers. And what I'm going to do is I am going to make a pattern. So I like this white daisy, this pink flower, and then this coral color flower. So I think those are going to be my three flowers. I'm going to make a pattern out of. So what you're going to do is you're going to want to hold your mouse down. And you can draw a rectangle over all three flowers. And then you can right-click. You can hit Copy. And then right click and hit paste. And it will make three more copies of the flower. And then I think I want one more white daisy because I need one down here. Be right-clicking Copy and then right-click and paste. And that is what I'm going to do for this row. So I've got white flower, pink flower, coral flower. So next, I will need a pink flower. I'm going to copy it and I'm going to paste it. And then what I'm going to do is I'm going to start with this orange flower. I'm going to hold my mouse down and I'm going to drag my rectangle over all of the rest of these flowers. And as you can see, when my rectangle goes over the flower, it highlights it. You can see the little boxes. That means it's all highlighted. I'm going to right-click copy. And then I'm going to right-click paste. And here is my second row of flowers. And then I'm going to, let's see, I've got a red flower and a white flower and you get pink flower. I'm going to copy this one, and I'm going to paste it. So here are our flowers. And what I'm going to do next is I'm going to take my mouse over everything. And I'm going to just kind of move it over a little bit so that it's more centered. So this is what our bookmark looks like. So far. And this bookmarks going to be mine. And I kind of want a little bit more customized. So I want to put my name on it. But I think what wouldn't look cools if I put a circle. So I'm going to click on my elements. I'm gonna come over here and type in circle. And I like this one. And when it put it in here, automatically, did it to one the matching colors. But if you didn't like this color, you can do it in pink or you could do it in the turquoise color. But I really like this coral color. And I'm going to make a really big I'm going to kind of put it in the center. I like the way that looks a lot. So I'm going to go over to the text right here and you can add your name or any other text you want to it. So I'm going to drag it and drop it right here. And I'm going to type genies. And I'm going to press the Enter button, bookmark. So what you can do next is if you hold down the button in the corner, you can make it larger. And then you can move it around wherever you want. So I'm going to make it a little bit smaller. And I think I want it to be a white color. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to make sure my text boxes highlighted. I'm gonna do that by clicking on it. Then I'm going to go over to this a right here. And that is your text color. I'm going to change it to white. I think that that really pops. So I'm going move it down a little bit because I think I want a flower on it and I want this white flowers. So I'm going to right-click, copy, right-click, paste. And then I'm going to drag it right on top. I think that, that looks super cute. I really like the way this turned out and I liked how I customize it by adding some text. So what I'm going to do next is I'm going to go to the bottom. I'm going to click Add a page. And it'll add a new bookmark. And what I'm going to do for this one is I'm going to click on the background. And since it made it the same color as this one, I'm going to change that and I'm going to, I think I'm going to make it a lime green. And down here they have this really bright colored green. I'm going to change it to that. Now. I was thinking of different bookmarks to make, and I wanted to make one for my brother. And I thought what would be something that he really likes? And I thought he loves Minecraft. So I'm gonna make a Minecraft bookmark. And what I'm going to do is I'm going to go over to my elements and I'm gonna type in mine craft. I'm going to search for it. As you can see, there are a whole bunch of different ones that you can choose. But we have a free account and we can only use the ones with free next to it. So we can't use any of the ones with the crown with the crowns next to it. That's a pro, but we can use this one and this one. So what I think I'm going to do is I'm going to take this grass. I think I'm going to make a pattern out of it. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to make it bigger. And I want to make it where it looks like there's dirt all the way on the bottom. I'm just kind of going to lower it down so it's slightly off the page of the bookmark. And what is going to print is what's within this bookmark. So I'm going to hit Copy and I'm going to hit paste. And then I'm just going to make another one. And I want to make sure that they are touching and overlapping so that you don't see the green of the background. What I'm going to do is on press down my mouse. And I'm going to go over these two squares. And I'm going to take the corner of it, press it down. I'm going to make them bigger. And I am going to lower it down. So these look pretty cool. What I'm going to do next is I'm going to make a pattern. So I'm going to highlight it. I'm going to right-click, I'm going to click Copy. And I'm going to right-click. I'm going to put Paste. And what I'm going to do is I'm going to line up the edge of this block with the tip right here. And then I'm going to click Paste again, and it'll paste the one we had there. And I'm going to put it right in the middle. And then I'm going to copy this one that's over on, I'm going to copy the one that is over on this edge. And then I'm going to click paste. And I'm going to bring it over here. And it looks like they're sitting on top of each other, which is super neat. So all you have to do next is you press your mouse down and you go over all of these blocks so that they're all highlighted. We're going to right-click copy. And we're going to right-click paste. And while they're all highlighted, we're going to move them up. So they look like they're on top of each other. And we just made a really cool pattern. So what I'm going to do next is I'm going to take this Minecraft image and I'm going to move it up top. And with this little circle in the corner, I'm going to press it and I'm going to drag it larger. So that is nice and large. And I'm going to drag it down to where I want it. And I think that looks pretty cool here. And this is our Minecraft bookmark. So we're going to make one more bookmark. And what we are going to do is we're going to click. Add page. And I'm going to get rid of that. And I think I want to make a princess bookmark. So I'm going to go over to the elements, make sure it's on there. I'm going to type in princess. And I'm going to see what comes up. And as you know, we looked at a whole bunch of these. We know that we can only use the ones that safe free and not the ones that say Pro next to it with a crown. So I know which one I'm going to do. I'm going to click on this one. You can click on whichever one you want. This one looks like Meredith from brave, and I love that movie. So what I think I'm going to do is I'm going to enlarge her MS. Sticker right in the middle. So what I'm going to do next is I'm going to go and search for a square and my elements. And I like this rounded square. So I'm going to drag and drop it in. And I'm going to make it larger. And I want it to be green. Maybe. I think I like this green. And I wanted to make her look like she's standing on grass. So what you're going to want to do is you're going to want to click on it. And then you're going to see this position in the toolbar up here. You're going to click on it and you're going to click backward. All that does is it makes her look like she is on grass. So what I'm going to do next is I'm going to click the background or the bookmark. And I wanted a blue color. I think, back color. But if you wanted to make it lighter, you can click on this rainbow right here. And you can move it around so you find one that you like. And I like that one. I think that looks really pretty. So. I really like the way this looks, but I think I want to maybe look for clouds to put in there. And I like this one. So I'm going to click on it. But I think I want it to be white. So I'm going to change it to white. And let's see how that looks. I really like. So what I'm going to do next is I'm going to right-click. I'm going to go copy. And I'm going to click, right-click and paste. And you can move them around however you want. Or if you wanted to make them larger, you can click on one of these circles and make it bigger by dragging it out. And then think I'm going to copy this one. And I'm going to right-click paste. Maybe make it a little bit smaller by clicking on the circle and dragging it in. I think I'll make one more cloud. I'm going, I copy it and I'm going to right-click Paste. And that is my last bookmark. So I really loved the way these bookmarks turned out. Now if you want to print them, you can click Download. And then you're going to want to go to PDF Standard. And you're going to want to download all the pages and you'll click the Download button. And once it's done, it will go to whoever your downloads are saved. And this is what it's going to look like, and you will print them in. What you can do is you can print them on card stock, or you can print them on your regular computer paper. And if you have thin cardboard, you can glue it to the cardboard. That is the end of this tutorial. I am very excited that you made for amazing bookmarks today.
