A Puzzle Card and a Strawberry Potholder

A while back I bought a puzzle magic punch from Herrschners when they had it clearanced for $5.99.  This punch lets you make a puzzle out of a 4 x 6 picture.  I decided to try it out by making a birthday card for my goddaughter Sarah.  I didn't have a photo to use, but I made up a little card in Word, then sized it to be
4 x 6, and printed it out on cardstock, then put it on a self-adhesive puzzle mat (which came with the punch), and then ran it thru the punch.  It has a little drawer to catch all the pieces.  It was a lot of fun to make, and Sarah loved putting together the puzzle to read her birthday greeting.  :)


I also have a new strawberry potholder in the shop. It seemed like a good design to welcome in summer!  :)
The pattern is listed in my etsy shop and can also be downloaded thru ravelry
