Puzzle Project

Wednesday, September 30, 2009

Believe it or not, I have been working on a LOT of projects! My main problem is, actually completing all of these wonderful plans and schemes I've got swirling around in my head, at any given time. I more or less jumped the gun on this one. Sarah's birthday isn't until the end of the the month but at least I got a head start. A few weeks ago, I sent her a "thinking of you" card just because I miss her and I wanted her to know. She e-mailed me back and said that it was the only decoration she had on her wall. Unbeknownst to her, I accepted that challenge! What challenge you might ask? The challenge to adorn her sparsely decorated new home. The primary challenge was to create something that would fit in a bubble envelope and not cost an arm and a leg to send all the way out to Australia. This was the result:

I created this entire project in less than a day and it was constructed out of a single 11x14 sheet of light weight chipboard. I roughly sketched the puzzle pieces, cut them apart, sanded the edges and then decorated each individual piece. I inked the sides, nailed holes into the edges and linked them all with jump rings. I really enjoyed working on this project and truly hope that she loves the finished project. I know I do.
