Tutorial: How to create a flyer in CorelDraw x3, x4 x7 and above

Before we begin this tutorial properly, I would like you to study the sketch below.

the layouts for the flyer

I drew four (4) separate boxes for different content in the sketch above.

The first shape is going to contain all the objects which include all the other shapes and image for the flyer.

The second shape at the top of the major container, should contain the contact information (Address, Website, Email and phone number) of the flyer design.

Now guess what the third shape is going to be used for? This will just have some contents for the reader to better understand the message the flyer is conveying. You can also add some call-to-action words there as well. The last box is simply for other contents like the company slogan. Like me, you may choose to add some social media accounts there.
