Ok all you craftsters... I need some input here...

My Aunt LOVES puzzles AND clocks so for Christmas I want to give her something I KNOW she doesn't have, a CLOCK made out of a finished PUZZLE!

I got a bottle of Puzzle Fix glue stuff that you put on top after you do the puzzle so it doesn't come apart, but what to put on the back? Would cereal box type of cardboard work? Something heavier? Should I use the Puzzle Fix to glue the backing on or a different glue? I will also need to drill a hole in the center, any tips?

Thanks for all your help! I know somebody out there will have the perfect ideas to help me!

that puzzle glue never worked for me.  i'd go for modge podge or elmer's.  puzzles are pretty sturdy, so cereal box cardboard or the like should do for the back.  use whatever kind of glue you like, just make sure it sticks.  to drill the hole, just go slow, and covering the area where the hole will be drilled in masking tape should help keep the drill from tearing up the puzzle.  good luck!

Fun! What a creative idea  Grin  I'm sure just your regular cardbaord would work...i think shoe box cardboard is thicker than cereal box, so i might use that instead.  I'd love to see a picture when youre done!
