Step 1: Getting the shapes in order

Draw 3 trapeziums using the Flowchart: Manual Operation option in Auto Shapes.

Selecting PowerPoint Shape Image

Then, draw 8 elliptical shapes and one rectangle from the auto shape option.

Fill the ellipses with white and leave the remaining shapes as transparent. This makes it easy for you to align the objects.

Put together the objects the way it shown in the following PowerPoint diagram:

You need to get the right proportions for the trapeziums and match the length of the ellipses to the two edges of each trapezium.

Now, in the rest of this PowerPoint Tutorial, you’ll learn to color this structure to make it look professional.

Step 2: Shading one layer of the funnel

First select and group the bigger ellipse and the trapezium.

Right click the group and go to ‘Format shape’ option. In that select the gradient fill and choose Moss preset.


Once you select the preset, make sure that the type is linear and the direction of Gradient Fill is chosen as Linear Right.

Now, you are ready to choose your gradient fill colors.


Go to Stop Position 1 and change the color to Darker 25% of your choice. In this PowerPoint Tutorial, we chose Dark Blue, Text 2 and Darker 25%.
