How to play

  1. From an old magazine, cut out a wide selection of large-type words. Remember to gather essential smaller words, such as "the," "of," and "is." After you write your masterpiece, affix your verse with a glue stick to a piece of card stock or keep the words in an envelope to use whenever inspiration strikes.
