MDS - Launch Bag Tag - Rotating Text

As always I had the bright idea to have named tags on my launch bags on Friday morning when the launch was Friday night.  I really didn't have the time to make them from scratch, even designing my own in MDS was going to take more time than I had.

Going to MDS I chose my project a 2 1/2 x 4 1/4" tag and chose the 'designer' option instead of 'create your own'.  Scrolling through it was the very last option that caught my eye - 'A  Little of This - thanks'.

I selected the following options to remove the bleed area, which also removed the mark for the hole.

I wanted to add a name to each tag so used the text options to do this and to colour it to match the colours in the tag.  I chose to use 'Taken with Teal'.

However the text really needed to be the right way up so used the rotate bar in the 'text' menu to select the number of degrees to move it by.  I found I couldn't select -90degrees exactly so adjusted it afterwards using the box to the top right of the slider.

Here's how it looked attached to the bag.  I managed to print 20 of these for my launch very quickly.  The ladies asked did I have a fancy printer because it printed so nicely.  I put that down to the Whisper White cardstock that I used in my cheap little multifunction printer.
