Tagxedo Collages

I should be sleeping in this Saturday morning, but I can't because I am simply too excited!
hello, summer
That's right - yesterday was my last day of school with the kiddos and now I am oh-so-ready for some summer lovin'! :)
I've got an action-packed summer planned, filled with moving, the TPT conference in Vegas (woohoo!), and two glorious weeks in Hawaii! In between these trips, I've got a TPT and blogging to-do list a mile long :)

To kick off my summer, I want to share an idea that you can use for school, for home, for church, for gifts, etc.
Today I'm going to share an
amazing website I stumbled on through Pinterest:

It's like wordle...only better :)
Here's an example I made for my students yesterday:

Because my classroom is travel-themed, I thought it would be fun to put their name in the shape of an airplane. I tacked on the "Soaring into 6th Grade" title and voila - instant display! The kids LOVED searching for their name over and over.
Here are the steps to create a tagxedo creation:
1. Go to www.tagxedo.com and click on "Start Now"
2. Load your words: 
You can either type in your words or enter the url of a websiteto gather words
Here's one I created by typing in my blog url:
*Note: If you're planning to enter two words that go together (i.e. Fifth Grade), I type them together to keep them together in your picture (i.e. FifthGrade)

2. Choose your shape

3. Change the THEME, or the color scheme: 

4. Save or Print
*Voila!*  That's it :)

Project Examples:
Here is a project I made for my students as an end of the year gift last year.
I made two different tagxedos: 
1. One with all of their names
 2. and one with fifth-grade related words:
And then I saved the images and
combined them together to make a keepsake:

Here are some other examples I have made,
both for home and for the classroom:
1. This is for my mom's birthday
2. This is a camping-themed one, 
as a keepsake of our Memorial Day camping trip:
3. This is hanging behind my desk, 
representing all of the things that bring me joy :)

4. This is a summer-themed one because 
I am oh-sooooo-ready for SUMMER!
Same words, but different color scheme:
 Hop on over to tagxedo to create someone of your own.
But I will warn you...it is very addicting :)
