Is the idea to alter a whole puzzle or can it be just random pieces that don't fit together?
I have a whole shoebox full of puzzle pieces that don't go together with any puzzles that I have.

I think most of us are doing one puzzle to make an art piece. But there are some really cool altered puzzle piece dolls/pendants/brooches - look on Google and Flickr.

Looking for Sophia the first fabric and Frozen fabric (preferably flannel, but would settle for cotton) and Phoomph.  I'm in Canada and the companies are that I could order from charge $20-$30 shipping, so if anybody can find some and wants to swap/sell, I would be eternally greatfull.

Help! I am working on a 100 piece puzzle with my best friend on our own time, and we need tips how to make everything look so perfect, such as the edges? I know you can use a nail file to smooth, but not in small tight spaces. Any ideas? I was hoping to find a tutorial, but only found wooden one. We are doing the chipboard kind. Anybody can help?  Huh Huh
Pretty please?  Grin

I think audio has a tip for how she does hers further back in the thread.  (If I get this wrong please correct me!)  She traces her piece on the paper she's going to use to cover it, then cuts it out a little smaller than the traced lines so that it fits perfectly without any overlap.  If you ink the edges it will never show.

I was thinking that I would glue a piece of fine grit sand paper to a pencil or chop stick to fit into the rounded parts. I have been tracing and cutting but sometimes I add more stuff on the pieces and forget to cut beforehand.

Maybe I'm missing something, but how do you ink the inside of the bendy parts? I found myself ruining a bunch of markers trying to get in there.
