Picture Perfect Puzzle

IMG_1767

Rae of Sunshine took beautiful pictures of my niece and created her precious announcement.  I absolutely love this photo, so when it came time to take the announcement off of the fridge, I wasn’t ready to put away the picture.  The card stock that the photo is printed on is thick, so I figured that it was the perfect paper to use for a popsicle stick puzzle.

Materials:

Photo

Modge Podge

Scissors

On the back of the photo, place a popsicle stick flat and trace a line down the side of the stick, continue to do this until you run out of room.

IMG_1767Using the Mod Podge and a small paint brush, cover the back of each picture strip.  Place each strip evenly onto the popsicle sticks, making sure that one is in line with the other. Once glue is dry, using a small paint brush, cover the top of each popsicle stick with the Mod Podge.  Allow to dry.  The Mod Podge will create a sealant over the picture.
