Bake sales are a great way to raise money for your favourite cause. You can have one for a club or organisation, a school event or trip, for a specific person or your local church. In order for it to be a success, people need to know it is taking place, so you need to advertise your bake sale to get the word out about it. Creating a bake sale flyer is a good method to use for doing this.

- Graphics application
- Pictures or clip art
Write down all of the important information about your bake sale. This includes the date, time, location, reason for having it or benefactor of it and any other important details about it.
Decide on graphics to place on the flyer. Take pictures of actual baked goods or use clip art to make it even easier. Find pictures that are suitable for a bake sale or that relate to it. Save these on your computer.
Access an application like Microsoft Publisher. Begin with a blank document. Name and save the flyer.
Add a border, background and graphics involving a bake sale to your flyer. Click on "Pictures" found in the Insert Menu. Locate the file and click "Insert" to add.
Move the pictures around with your mouse. Use the right-click options to alter the appearance of any pictures you want to change.
Put all of the details on the flyer. Utilise the "Text Frame Tool" to choose the placement of the wording on the flyer. Experiment with various font styles, colours and sizes.
Make any required edits. Read over the complete flyer and modify anything needed. Save all of the changes you have made.
Print a single flyer and check it again. Load your printer with the paper. Print the bake sale flyers as needed and hang them in appropriate places around your town.
Tips and warnings
- Use WordArt to create the title across the top of your bake sale flyer. It has a number of options to alter the look of the wording to make it noticeable.
- Use vivid colours on the flyer or print it on brightly coloured paper: You want it to stand out and be easily readable.
- Check with your local health department to make certain it is all right to sell items baked in the home: they might require that these items be prepared in a "certified kitchen" to meet health regulations when sold to the public.
