A sweet friend turned 80 this weekend so I found myself in need of a quick birthday card. She LOVES putting jigsaw puzzles together so I made one for her as her card. This was the picture I used: (can you guess her favorite color?)
And this is the die I used to cut the puzzle. I bought it to make puzzles for small children to occupy them while in a restaurant. I thought I'd have some in my purse and when they started getting restless I would give them one.
It was a really quick task.
- Make the picture in CorelDraw
- Print it onto 8.5x11 label paper
- Stick that down onto book board
- Run through die cut
I then put the pieces in a small paper bag and decorated it with washi tape and a paper flower I had sitting close by.
OH MY GOODNESS! You would have thought I had given her the moon! Thrilled. I also gave her a gift card to her favorite store and a hat with a flower. I wish now I would have taken a picture because she was too cute in that hat!
