Hi Lucy -
I just had no trouble doing this, but there is one thing  
different...I did not open a graphics program to re-format the sign  
from SignPuddle. Instead, SignPuddle gives you an automatic PNG  
graphics file, if you Right-Click with your mouse directly on top of  
the sign in SignPuddle...and then choose Copy Image or Save Image As...

If you choose Copy Image...then open Word and choose Paste under the  
Edit pastes the sign right in...

If you choose Save As, then it arrives on your desktop as a PNG. Then  
open Word and use the Insert Picture command under the Insert Menu...

Here is a diagram that I just created in Microsoft Word for you:
