Christmas Card Puzzle

Well I completed something I have been meaning to do for a while now. That is convert a Christmas card to a puzzle. It is simple take a Christmas Card you like and cut the front off. then glue that to a piece of BB ply. I choose 1/8 most people seem to use 1/4 but I have a bunch of 1/8 hanging around so I might as well use that!

It came out decent the 1/8 seems like a good choice time will tell. I put a clearcoat on it prior to cutting out the puzzle. I did not "Free hand it" I created the pattern and used another piece of ply on top with the pattern applied to that. I made it a 77 piece puzzle. Why 77? Well that is just what it worked out to be.

The pieces all cut out

The puzzle all together
