How do I put a page break under a bunch of tables?

I have downloaded a document from the Avery Website for printing to hang tags.  It has six tables, positioned on the page to print on the tags.  I made a template from it, and put my design and text into the tables so they print correctly.  These tags are two-sided, so I want to print duplex, but that requires a second page just like the first, to print on the back of the page.  I have tried to place a page break at the bottom, but it always bounces up to the top.  How can I get a page break under the tables, and then copy them to the same positions on the next page?

I used your template to Save As -> pdf

Then I inserted the pdf file in the header and resized to the pdf to 11 x 8.5.Helen-s-Handknits-Hang-Tags-1.docx

This is quite an  ingenious solution, though not quite perfect.  This document says it is a 4-page document, but I can't go page to page.  I tried printing it duplex (just pages 1-2), and it did print, but the back was not quite aligned with the front -- there is about 1/4" of overlap.  Is there any way to get a more normal document, where I can go page to page, and (if necessary) adjust the margins on the 2nd page so the back and front are correctly aligned?

The pdf image was at 100% - now I set it to 90%.

Select Page Layout -> Page Setup -> Layout tab  -> Different odd and even, you should be able to adjust the overlap by moving the image on page 2.Helen-s-Handknits-Hang-Tags-2.docx

I am thinking of redoing the template (and document) as a single table, which would give me more control over margins, etc., but this is a solution that will probably come in handy elsewhere, so I am giving you credit for it.

Since you are using a downloaded document from the Avery Website, there is a limit with what you can do with it!

These documents are almost impossible to modify!

Perhaps you can try this .tif file:Helen-s-Handknits-Hang-Tags.tif
