Talk about a perfect fit: The eight chipboard pieces that form the base of this heart-shaped puzzle cost just $1.20 (5"W × 4⅜
Step 1: Choose a digital image, resizing it, if needed, to at least 6"W x 5"H. Print onto matte photo paper.
Step 2: Snap the jigsaw pieces together and lay them on top of your photo, then trace around the puzzle's perimeter with a pencil. Cut out the resulting heart shape.
Step 3: Turn the photo and all the puzzle pieces facedown. Position the bottommost puzzle piece along the corresponding part of the back of the photo. Trace closely around the puzzle piece with a pencil, then remove. Repeat with the remaining puzzle pieces.
Step 4: Carefully cut out each jigsaw shape from your photo with scissors (the smaller, the better). Use an acid-free glue stick to mount each cutout, faceup, to its matching puzzle piece, also faceup. Slip the pieces in an envelope, and seal—if you like—with a kiss.
