  • puzzle piece gift tags: I really like how these puzzle piece gift tags from Mel Designs are given a ton of extra embellishment, but they wouldn’t have to be. You could simply drill a hole, add your info to the blank back, and be done!
  • puzzle piece pin or magnet: As with this puzzle piece ghost pin from Crafty Moms Share, a single decorated puzzle piece can be easily crafted into either a refrigerator magnet or simple brooch.
  • puzzle piece altered art: I’ve seen embellished puzzle pieces as components of smash books, journals, ATCs and any other altered art that you can think of. Although the jigsaw shape works almost universally, you can reshape most standard pieces with strong scissors, a sharp x-acto knife, and sandpaper.

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life; my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties; and my for links to articles about poverty, educational politics, and this famous cat who lives in my neighborhood.

  1. I love these ideas! We have a few Bella Sara puzzles that are missing pieces, but the kiddo still enjoys making the puzzles. In a few years though, I should have lots of fun puzzle fodder!
