What a great idea! I love the alphabet idea too. Guess I'll have to check out the stores this weekend, no dollar stores here, so I'm not sure if I'll be able to find a cheap one.

Boldly going where others have probably been.

I have never done any ATC or anything like that, but this sounds like fun. I may have to give it a try.

I love this idea. I think I have a puzzle that would work too  Grin
Not sure all the pieces are there but I could do something
Awesome! I really can't believe how many people have already shown their interest in this craft along, I was sure it would fall away quickly!

IF all the pieces are not there, you could always make pieces from the negative space with some cardboard.


or you could just leave them blank depending on the rest of the pieces.

i am definately going to see about finding a jigsaw for this. this sounds like an awesome idea and something i can do at night after all the house renovations are done for the day.

I love your first piece. And the image was the perfect size for it! (Getting excited now...who knows when I'll have time, though  Sad)

I picked up my puzzle on the way home! My dollar store had the same exact ones, so I figured that 25 was close enough to 26 Wink

I'm working on coming up with words/phrases for my chosen alphabet theme... which shall remain a mystery for now...

That really does look cool with the three pieces together!  I love how they are completely different but fit together (obviously, since they're puzzle pieces!  I guess I don't really know how to describe what I mean.  The edges of your pieces look so clean!  Do you just trace the piece then cut and paste it on?

I just dug out the blank puzzles I inherited, I have three big ones with 35 pieces about 8.5"x11", and a few postcard size ones (I don't know about them though, I'm not too crazy about them).  I think I'm going to start an alphabet on one of the 35 piecers and maybe just a random one too.  I want to hang at least one of them on our bare, boring walls when I finish.
