Bless you! I've always wondered how you did these. I gave it a try once in the Wikipedia sandbox and failed miserably, so I'm really grateful for these instructions. :)

Once again, thank you!

I would have thought that would have been obvious. You put it on wikipedia. Either your userpage or sandbox.

You edit wikipedia and put that in. Then after if you need to touch it up use MS paint or some other image editing software.
