The favorite-picture puzzle

A puzzle of your favorite picture – a gift can hardly be more personal. The puzzle pieces can be designed individually and when required it can be amplified unlimitedly. This way there is enough room for all the nice things that everyone wishes for, e. g. pictures of pets, small drawings or self-crafted objects. You can start immediately with our download template: Just print and cut it out, design it – finished!

 

 

 

 

This is how it works:

  1. First print out the download template. Transcribe the template to the carton, e. g. to the backside of a sketch block. Tip: Use blue-carbon leaf, e. g. Pelikan Handifilm 205.
  1. Cut out the single puzzle pieces. When cutting them out, watch out that the puzzle pieces fit together well. If necessary correct the cutting edges. Alternatively, the puzzle pieces can be sawed out of plywood
The puzzle pieces are cut out of the back side of a sketch block.

 

  1. Color the cut out puzzle pieces with PLAKA varnish signal-red and PLAKA yellow. By using shiny PLAKA varnish and matt PLAKA paint, you can create a nice contrast between shiny and matt. Don't forget the edges. Let everything dry thoroughly.
The puzzle pieces are colored with PLAKA.
  1. Now look for suitable photographs, self-drawn pictures or other small handcrafts, which can be glued behind the puzzle pieces in the hole in the middle. In our example we cut out our favorite animals. Leave a gluing edge on all pictures.
All photographs are cut out so that a rim stands out.
  1. Stick the previously cut out pictures to the holes in the puzzle pieces with a piece of tape. Then put the puzzle pieces together and connect them on the backside with a piece of tape as well. This way you can connect a desirable number of puzzle pieces with each other.
Stick the pictures to the backside of the holes in the puzzle pieces. Two pieces can be connected on the backside with tape.
The finished parts can be combined numerously. Hang this personal present up somewhere special, e. g. over your desk it will surely have a great effect.
