QKR Stampede - Altered Puzzle Pieces

Hi there. It is QKR Stampede Thursday here on my blog. Today I wanted to try something I have been meaning to do for a long time. Awhile back (over a year), we organized all the kids puzzles. I decided to save some of the pieces to make altered crafts. Well...I finally did it! I actually used 2 pieces. I glued them together, and covered with the Echo Park paper. Then I added some glitter to look like a snow hill. I added the TREE image, that I stamped on dark green CS and fussy cut. I added some glitter to the tree to look like snow along the edges. Next I added the Cross Country Skiing Penguin image. I colored him and fussy cut him too. I was trying to make it look like he is going to crash into the tree...since he isn't looking where he is going. LOL Last thing I did, was flip the puzzle pieces over and add magnets to the back. I thought this would make a cute winter magnet for the fridge.
Well that is it for today. I have been working on another "big" project that I can't wait to share with you. Unfortunately you have to wait until the 17th...lol. It is a gift for my mom, and I know she reads my blog. Have a great day!

How cute is that?!?! I love this idea. I have a whole bag of puzzle pieces that I have been keeping for "projects" and this is so darn cute, I might try something like that. But my pieces are pretty small, so I guess I'd need to put several together to make it. I love it! TFS!!!
