Tagul name clouds

So I have gotten a lot of questions about how I make these name clouds...
And I happened to have a moment to respond tonight...but for some reason I can't respond to the comments that I have gotten...so instead I made a little video for you...
I hope this helps you out!

UPDATED- -
I just finished mine for this year’s class! This is how I fixed the size issues…
In the “Appearance” section click to make a rectangle shape.
Where it says aspect ratio change to 1.35.
I saved changes then under “Grab and Share” I click save as a graphic image.
I insert that graphic into Word or Publisher and resize to make it fit properly on the page.

  1. Thanks for sharing this little tutorial for Tagul. We had not heard about it, but it would be great for an end of the year activity we do with our kiddos!

  4. Thank you, thank you! This is just what I was looking for. I plan to make these for my volunteers and then print on an iron-on transfer and then onto canvas bags! Wish me luck!

  6. This is so great! I am doing it for my fourth graders this year, and I have been trying to print it a different size and it won't seem to change for me. What size did you print yours and how did you get it that size? Thanks!

    I just saw on the original post about this that you need to go to the appearance tab and make the angle: 0 and Aspect Ratio: 1.25 then click Visualize to make the change. It should make it 81/2 by 11 then. I am new to this. Good luck!

  9. I am having trouble printing mine where it is centered. It always leaves too much space at the bottom (in portrait) or on the sides (landscape). Any thoughts on how to fix that?

  12. I can't center mine either, however I am going to cut mine out and mount on colored cardstock/scrapbook paper background for the frame.
