Step 5
Fifth ...

... Now choose 2 or 3 clip art images from Graphics Factory and Add them to your download cart in a .WMF or .EPS format (View the fastest way to download clip art tutorial). I prefer to use .WMF or .JPG images for this project as they are easier to use because you can copy and paste them directly onto your shopping list.

Step 6
Sixth ...

... After you resize and position your clip art images you can print and cut your shopping list. You can also make some for friends.
