Making Word Search Puzzles

Many times, working with a word search someone has created is problematic at layout time.

Avoid creating problems for the layout person by making your puzzle easy to work with--carefully follow the steps below:

1. Use Excel or tables in Word to make the actual puzzle. You will add a title, list of words and byline later.

2. When done, copy and paste into Microsoft Paint.

3. Then copy and paste it into a Word Document.

4. Now you can add a title and a list of words—use text boxes or word art.

That’s it—save and you’re done!
