I have a design on an invitation that I want to use. They are animals, and I want to make them into cut-outs. I'm not sure how to go about making them big enough to put on the cake (instead of invitation size)? Thanks!

A photocopier. OR use your computer & print them out.
Usually I would take them to Staples and enlarge it.

Scan them into your computer and blow them up the size you want. If you don't have a scanner, use a copy machine to enlarge them. HTH

hie thee to the nearest photo copier and enlarge....


if you have a scanner....
> scan at 300 dpi (dots per inch),
> save as a jpg (at highest resolution setting)
> import into word or publisher and stretch to size needed (publisher has option to tile the image on multiple sheets you can them tape together to get a really BIG image)

Thanks! That's what I was thinking I'd have to do, but I didn't know if there'd be a different way.
