Wordle

Try this website:

http://www.wordle.net/create


Here's how to do it:

*Think of a theme for example...Wedding

*Next, think of all the words that have to do with the subject:

Jessica
Matt
Temple
Wedding
Happy
Forever
May
2007
ring
tux
dress
flowers

*Then Press Go

*It will automatically pick your colors, layout, and font for you. But, If you don't like them, you can customize them to your liking. Here's how:

-Find the button under the wordle that says "Randomize". This will rearrange the words in another arrangement. Click it until you're happy with it.

-Edit: Undo or redo things
-Language: You can change the language, or make it all uppercase, or lower case
-Font: Pick a font, they have numerous options
-Layout: You can choose to have it in alphabetical order, horizontal, vertical,etc.
-Color:I like to personalize mine to my own colors.

Here are the steps:
-Go to Color

-Then Pick "Edit Custom Palette"

-You can pick up to 5 custom colors.

Then if you're happy with everything print it and frame it.

Instead of printing it, I was thinking about actually cutting out letters using my Cricut, and arranging the words like the WORDLE I liked. I would then glue the arrangement down on card stock and frame it...
