      Google search "Eclipse Crossword" and it should find a website where you can download a free trial software that allows you to create your own crossword puzzles also.

      I'm doing the same thing with the OOT bags. I also found a find-a-word book at Wal-Mart that had a couple puzzles in there about weddings, love, ocean life, etc..., so I bought that and am inserting tables into Powerpoint to re-create them with our logo on the top of the page. (ZoeGirl idea from The Knot)...

        Thanks Sarah! I really wanted to include Soduku puzzles but wasn't sure how.
        I thought about cutting pages out but then what would have been a tad tacky.

                  I haven't completed the final project yet but am going to work on it on tuesady this week. I am thinking I will make a simple book using 8 1/2 x 11 paper, landscape direction and copy the puzzles on the front and back sides of the pages and staple them together in the middle. does that make sence? anyone else have some easy / cheap ideas? I don't want to spend a lot on these - it's just for fun - not going to last forever.

                    i think this might be cheesy but it's just about the only thing i could come up with...

                    use cardstock for the front and back, punch 3 holes up the sides and secure it with brads so it's really like a book...

                    i really do think that's cheesy though

                    i'm gonna keep thinking :P

                    what about ribbon instead of brads, because with brads its always hard to flip the pages. with ribbon people can fully open up to a new page, and if you get a festive color to go with your wedding colors it will look very nice.
