Homemade Christmas Gifts Reveal #3: Family Shape Puzzle

Step One: Use What You Have.
Start with a store bought puzzle.
I used this version from Melissa and Doug for both puzzles.
I used one that I already had in the house for my own daughter
and one that I got from Freecycle to re-make for my Sister In Law's new baby.

Step Two: Follow the Lines.
Trace Family Photos to glue into the holes.

Step Three: Put On a Happy Face.
Here is the puzzle with photos glued into the holes.
Cover with protective coating of clear Mod Podge when the glue is dry.

Step Four: Get Artsy.
To Jazz it Up...I took off the handles and added scrapbooking paper
to each shape andcoated these with a layer of Modge Podge as well.

Here is my adorable sister in law opening hers on Christmas day!
How cute would this be for baby's first Christmas
(or as a first birthday present... or even for a shower gift?!)

Happy Re-cycled Crafting!
