Very pretty eye candy for the "In the Round" puzzle  Kiss Pizza puzzle,,,,ha, ha, ha.

I use small cuticle scissors to cut the tiny spots. If you trim with big scissors, first, about 1/8th inch away or so, your itsty bitsy scissors can do their job better. It is a double trim method. But more accurate. It helps the "slag" turn away. In smaller itsy bitsy pieces. They curl, and come off your scissor better. When you have crossed the grain. Think bias weave. Paper also has a grain.

But, I agree...these crazy pieces are a booger. I am still on project. I have ten more to go! And these weird themes  Grin You are all definately teaching me  Roll Eyes

I have 10 completed, as of today.  Grin Which means half the round. I'm a double nut here. So one group to go.
No, you are not all out of the same group. I bounced with what I could find for everyone.

I'm excited to get started on all these pieces, but I've finally conceded that the post office has lost two of my envelopes from an inchie swap many moons ago, so I really have to do those first.  Grr...

I have two pieces done! And nothing on the others....very organized though. Each in their envelope with the pieces traced on the eps for matching later if they get mixed up. I've found the top of my craft table (big win!  Cheesy). And I have some ideas swirling, some finalized but no action. So just checking in.

Love the circle puzzle!
Did it come that way or did you cut it?

It came that way, I found it in a charity shop for 50p (less than a dollar).

Question to those who probably know what I am talking about!  Huh  This is my first altered puzzle swap, I am wondering how the heck do you trim the paper in the small nook and cranny of a puzzle piece that a scissor can't get to? A round nail file? Hardware store? I need tips! :-D  Smiley

I trace the puzzle piece onto a sheet of printer paper, cut it out and decorate that, then just stick that to the puzzle piece. It is easier to cut out that way.

That's what I do, but sometimes the paper sticks out, I even try cutting inside of the line, still a bit over. I managed to figure out an solution for now. :-D
