Hello crafty friends! Today I am here to share a project that I created using one of my favorite materials to cut with the CAMEO… Silhouette chipboard! I love the chipboard because it is such an easy way to add durability and dimensions to my projects.
For today’s project I combined the chipboard with the white sticker paper to make a little puzzle.
You can make a puzzle out of any picture you choose, or you can use shapes from the online store like I did here. I opened the owl shape in Silhouette studio and using the shape’s thumbnail in my library as reference, I opened the fill color window and filled in all of the shapes with color.
Next, I opened the puzzle shape and resized it to fit right over the top of the owl.
Because I only wanted the puzzle pieces to cut, and not the other shapes, I then opened the cut style window and set everything to no cut except for the puzzle shape.
Then, I placed the sticker paper on the mat, loaded it into the CAMEO, selected printable sticker paper from the menu and cut it out.
Next, I turned off the registration marks and cut the same shape out of chipboard. Then I carefully applied each sticker piece to the corresponding chipboard piece. Voila… adorable chipboard puzzle!
I also used the chipboard to cut out a small box to store the puzzle in, and of course you need to have a picture to look at for reference when putting the puzzle together, so I printed the owl image again on a smaller scale to adhere to the top of the box.
How fun would it be to make one of these with your child’s picture, or one of their favorite toys, pets etc?!
