Howdy! Here are the first 3 of what might be my new favorite things EVER:

With some pretty paper, XOXO paper ribbon, a corner rounder, a 5/8ths square punch, some StazOn ink, a V-day stamp set from Michael's, my distresser kit, and my Stampin' Up watercolor pencils/blender...this is what happened to some puzzle pieces I had laying around:


They started as "I-spy" puzzle pieces that I found at Scrap-4-Art in Toledo, OH. They called to me.




I plan on making MANY more because they are super easy!

SUPER SHAMELESS PLUG: If you are anywhere near Toledo, OH- you should check out "Scrap4Art." It is a non-profit organization mainly geared towards teachers but anyone is welcome! Long story short- it is a building full of "(s)crap" such as fabric, paint chips, old books, odd n' ends-ANYTHING that they get donated. You can walk in and either pick a lunch sack or a full paper bag for a SMALL fee and fill it up to the brim! It is such an afternoon of FUN. It is kind of like Goodwill- sometimes you find many gems and sometimes you find nothing- but it is worth checking out. Thanks for reading my shameless plug. Smiley

Wow, these are very cute!  Thank you for the idea.

I might have to make a roadtrip to Toledo sooner than later!

These are such a great idea!   I may have to try out the puzzle I have for Christmas tags!  Yours are gorgeous, by the way.  Did you use Modge Podge or something else to affix the paper?

Those look so awesome!  I'm going to have to put all of the kids puzzles I have to good use between these and altered puzzles!

And that store sounds awesome! I wish we had one around here!
