I'm showing off all sorts of things I made, after finally getting a digital camera.

I thrifted the puzzles, put them together, then modpodged into about 3x5 pieces, then used as collage bases.  They go through the mail, too!
This is a close up of some:

The postcards are a great idea! I never thought about using puzzles as a base for anything, but I'm definitely going to file that away. Great job!

My brother used to love putting together puzzles.
I usually mail him post cards now and then - this is a great idea to mail next time!

I absolutely love both of your ideas! I've been meaning to break out the mod podge for a while, but now I positively need to!

I especially love the way the mini cards look... my sister has a thing for playing cards, so I might just have to cook up a way to incorporate that into a project for her. Smiley

How cool is that! I also heart Mod Podge.

Fearlessly willing to try new crafts ... and usually botching them horribly.

Thanks, everyone!  I love puzzles: they're a fun activity and a collage base, all rolled into one!
Also, no matter how else my thrift karma is doing that day, I always leave with at least one good puzzle, for less than $1.  And since I know that the jerks (affectionate nickname for the cats--my mom yells at me when I call her grandkittens that) will steal a few pieces, I'm not worried about bringing them home whole.

I do postcardx.net so this gives me some great ideas for future postcards. I love modpodge too, but do they really trap the puzzle pieces down for safe travel? I guess I don't coat my stuff enough.

I do a couple coats on each side (and that's before collage-ness), and that seems to be good--at least until the cats start chewing.
The ones I've sent through the mail have been fine.
