I wanted to use my own handwriting to make it even more personal to us, but you could just skip the first couple of steps and use a font and then the whole project can probably be made using Word or a similar software. Here is how I turned my handwriting into something that I could print and cut out on a large scale. I wrote out my word a couple of times on a scratch pad. You can ...
