Well, make a screen shot of your VMK character (if you don't know how to do this, see players guide at top). Then what I did was crop it down (I used Kodak EasyShare, but you should use whatever picture software you have. Then I put it in Word and printed it out. I'm SURE there is an easier way to do all this...but I am techno-challenged. But if I can do it, anyone can!
I then took it to Staples to have the plastic put on it (sorry, I am braindead right now and can't think of the term). Edit: LAMINATED...that's the word! Put it on a stick and voila! You have a VMK flat.
I just covered mine with clear packing tape. Unfortunately I stuck it in the sugar bowl at the Kona Cafe before I took any pictures.
I wonder what the CMs at Kona thought of it?
ROFL! about the sugar. Thanks, I need to know how to make on, lol
How big have some of you made your flats? Are you just taking them from the screenshot or resizing them and making them a little bigger. When I do that of course it makes it a little fuzzy.
I stretched mine to where I wanted it. They are about, oh, 3-4 inches long total (including the surrounding background). Make them whatever size you want. Mine are also a little fuzzy. But they work just fine.
Mine are about 4" high -- enlarged them just a bit so they didn't get that distorted. I took a screen shot, then enlarged it in Paint Shop Pro. I would assume that you could also use Paint to paste your image in there, but not sure how to enlarge it from there. I guess Word would be another option for enlarging. After I printed out our flats, I used colored pencils to darken the outlined areas that became a bit fuzzy due to enlarging. Then I had them laminated, and cut that out as well . Ta da! Flats to go!
