Funny clip art adds humor and cheer to printed media, including personalized cards, address labels, classroom bulletin boards and party decorations. Clip art also lends color and fun to digital media, from PowerPoint presentations to personal websites.
Martha Stewart's website provides projects for clip art cards and decorations that require only a little imagination to get big laughs. The tutorial titled "Clip-Art Cards" gives instructions on how to combine clip art with family photos to create silly scenes, such as a couple holding clip-art champagne flutes or a child holding a clip-art wrapped gift. For holidays and parties, Martha Stewart uses clip art to create decorations from table place settings and hanging paper lanterns to flag banners and carved pumpkins. Try swapping out the provided clip art with some of your own, such as celebrity art with thought bubbles or cartoon animals for table settings.
For mailing supplies, Microsoft Office's support website offers tutorials to incorporate clip art into templates, including return address labels. Wise guys can try finding clip art faces that resemble their own to make the receiver laugh or use a funny image related to a favorite activity. The Office tutorial titled "Make a label or a sheet of the same labels" includes step-by-step directions for adding graphics.
Teachers often use clip art to brighten their classrooms, from work sheets to bulletin boards. Humorous clip art can engage students and help them retain information, especially when used to create a memorable montage, such as funny faces of famous authors or wacky animals. Teachers can also incorporate clip art into dry PowerPoint presentations to make kids laugh and keep their attention.
