Magnetic Alphabet Puzzle


How cute is this alphabet design?! Today I’m going to show you how to turn it into a magnetic puzzle. To make this you’ll want to grab a sheet of white card stock, adhesive magnet paper, and keep your printer handy.

  • Begin by deleting the red cutting line that runs along the outside of the alphabet printable.
  • Open up the puzzle design. Rotate it and stretch it out so it fits the alphabet printable. Notice how I’m not using the entire alphabet design since there is a lot of plain space around the edges.

  • Group the two designs together so they’re easier to move around.
  • Turn on your registration marks and re-size the design so that it fits within the Print & Cut borders.

  • Print the design on white card stock.
  • Cut the printed sheet with your CAMEO or Portrait.
  • Remove the registration marks and cut the puzzle design on adhesive magnet paper. When cutting adhesive magnet paper place the sheet on your cutting mat with the white side facing up.
  • Now all you have to do is stick the printed puzzle on the magnet pieces. Hooray for not having to break out the glue!

This momma is a big fan of magnetic puzzles since all the pieces tend to stay together in one place. This particular puzzle has quite a few pieces that might make it too difficult for younger ones to complete on their own. Feel free to use a design with less pieces. Thankfully there are plenty of puzzle designs to choose from in the Silhouette Design Store.

Have fun!


Hi there, I’m Analisa! I love to travel and explore new places along with my husband and son. When we’re not on the go I’m happily crafting. I’ve been a crafter for as long as I can remember. When I was younger I collected every craft kit I could get my hands on. Not much has changed. I love my Silhouette because it such a versatile instrument for creating. I can stencil fabric with one project, then create stickers for my son with the next. I love experimenting with all it can do.

  1. Great idea, Analisa!

  2. These directions sound like you cut the printed card stock into pieces then cut the magnet into pieces and then put each piece of the card stock onto its matching piece of magnet. Am I missing something? Can you not just print the card stock, adhere it to the magnet sheet and cut it all at once?

  3. How cute and brilliant idea 🙂

  4. What a cute project. I can see how the puzzle would appeal to kids – and the crafts person who makes it!

  5. I did not use the magnetic paper. I printed the alphabets on card stock with no registration marks and loaded the printed card stock on the mat. Next I loaded the puzzle image onto the design area, sized it to fit my design area printed on the card stock and sent it to the cutter. I got a very good cut out. If I decide to use the magnetic paper, I will print on card stock, attach it to magnetic paper, load it to the mat, then load puzzle image to design area and send it to cutter.

  6. I think I am missing something? Where are the puzzle lines or how do I get them?

    1. Hi Claire! The original file did not contain the correct pieces. The design has been fixed and now includes all layers, includding the puzzle lines. To receive the updated version, delete the incomplete file from your library and re-download it. If you have any further problems please contact customer support here.

      1. Thanks , I’ll try that!
