Inexpensive Christmas Gift Idea


I have an inexpensive Christmas gift idea for an interesting and personal piece of art. Here is a picture of the one I just created. The photo probably does not do it justice. Here are the instructions:
1. Go to your word processor-like Word or Works and type in words that are meaningful to the person for whom the gift is being made....I typed in our family names, dogs names, hobbies, etc-and then copy the text to the clipboard
2. Go to Worlde this link here
3. Click in the "paste in a bunch of text" box and paste your text from your clipboard
4. click the "Go" underneath the box
5. Look at what you made! Then, you can change it up using the buttons.....just play around until you get what you like.
6. Print it out on photo paper
7. Use that print out for your art
8. Or, go to copy shop and get a larger copy
9. Buy a frame-I got mine at Michaels and used my 40% off coupon
10. Wrap it up- Wala- Beautiful and thoughtful art gift....Yay for you

Your blog is not letting me follow you. I am going to plug you into my reader and I will try again to be a follower at another time. Maybe blogger is having a difficult night.
