Photo Puzzle Cubes
My sisters and I would spend endless hours with Super Dad putting the 1000 + puzzle pieces together when we were kids. We’d start on a Friday night and continue working on the puzzle a little at a time. We were obsessed with getting it done. We stayed up late on a school night to finish the puzzles. It’s something I still like to do today.
I thought my next DIY craft could be about puzzles. This makes a great party favor or gift in general. These photo puzzle cubes can be easy or challenging depending on how you make it. I recommend the easier method if you are gifting this to children. If this puzzle is for adults, make it six times harder by pasting a photo on all sides of the cube. The results will surprise them.
How to a Make Puzzle Set
Wooden cubes to make a 3.5 x 3.5 square
1-6 photos (3.5 x 3.5 inches)
- Line the wooden cubes to make a square. My cubes are 1 cm around.
- Cut photo to desired dimensions (3.5 x 3.5). Here is a tip. Use the ruler to mark your measurement. Number each square and then cut them out. Number the squares to help determine where the photo pieces will go.
- Glue the photo pieces to the wooden cube. If you are making a challenging puzzle set, use 6 photos and cut it up to fill each sides of the cube.
- Let the glue dry. Store the puzzle pieces in a mason jar with a gift tag attached.
