Discover an amazing PowerPoint effect to make your business slides attractive. Follow our simple step by step instruction to create curved text box.
Though the text box looks curved – it isn’t actually. We created the effect by adding a special shadow at the back. In this article, you’ll learn to create the effect in a simple step by step way.
Go to Auto shapes menu. From ‘Basic shapes’ select ‘Moon’ tool to create a crescent shape as follows:
Rotate the shape by going to Format > Rotate > Rotate Right 90⁰ and color it grey. Remove the outline.
Pull the yellow diamond handle in the middle down:
Select the shape. Go to ‘Shape effects’ drop down menu -> Soft edges -> Soft edge 25 pt.
Now our special shadow is ready.

Place it on a text box and adjust the width of the crescent to match the width of the text box. Once done, right click on the crescent and ‘send to back’. Presto! Now your text box looks curved.
To give the look of a realistic sticky note, you can fill color the rectangle with Light Yellow color and provide a Light Grey Outline.
You can use some hand writing font to write on this sticky note to give it a realistic look.
You can use this PowerPoint effect in a number of ways. We wish to show you some applications of the effect in your business slides.
