{DIY Christmas} Word Find Gift Wrap

8:00 am

How cute is this? Word Find Gift Wrap!
Personalised and tailored for the people you are gifting to. Love.



So filming the actual process from the computer screen seemed awkward so, follow my written steps below :)

Step 1
Make your way to a Word Find Creator website.
 
Some ones I suggest trying, and each will appeal to different people for different reasons depending on exactly what you're wanting to create or how much say you want to have over the customisation options are:
 
 
(Follow the exact links above and they'll take you to where you need to be on those sites)
 
Personally I used the first link - www.edcreate.com as this had the most options available to personalise my word finds
 

Step 2
Depending on the size of paper you are using or needing, you will need to play around with the column and row settings, the margin settings and font sizing. These will all vary depending on what site you're using.
eg. 40 columns x 30 rows + size 15 font

Check to make sure your whole piece of paper is covered in the word find by checking your print preview often and adjusting any necessary settings on both the site and printer preferences.

 
 Step 3
Think about how and what you'll be wrapping. Most times, its more convenient if the writing only goes in a left to right direction and a vertically downwards position. Some sites will allow you to customise this, and others won't.
                               
 
Step 4
Choose 3-6 words you want to appear on your final wrapping paper and insert each of these words at least 5-6 times. This way, you are more likely to have the wording appear within the centre top of your gift, where you want to be able to see it.

Step 5
Keep checking your print preview. It may take several attempts to for the word find generator to create a word find where the words are in the correct place for wrapping or in the order you wanted them to appear. Some sites will also offer a cheat copy that shows you where it has placed the words without having to do the word find yourself to find them!
 
Step 6
Print onto white or coloured printer paper. Most of you may be printing onto standard A4 printer paper but remember if you have access to a large photocopier, you could also re-size this to A3 size or larger.
 

Step 7

And lastly, go ahead and circle or underline the personalised words and wrap away!
