Preschool Puzzle.......

I've been wanting to make a puzzle with my silhouette now for a while.  I had an idea of how I wanted it to look like, but didn't have the details together yet.  I knew that I would either use chipboard or cereal boxes to make it.  I found that the chipboard is a little thicker than cereal boxes.

When Miss Mint at Peppermint Creative put this kit together, I knew immediately that I was going to do two projects for the Creative Team.  One was my Memory Game that I posted earlier last week and the other was this cute preschool puzzle.  I almost nixed it when I saw that there was a tutorial that was posted on the Silhouette Blog last week doing a similar puzzle idea.  With all the creative minds out there and pinterest, we are bound to have same ideas cross paths.   It's just frustrating that you see it right before you are about to do your project.  It's happened to me twice in the last month.  But I have learned that it's okay, because each person has their own little twist on things.  And along the way, we may learn something from each other that the other person wasn't aware of.  Still with me? LOL!

For this puzzle I used the Little Learner kit.  It is the same kit that I used on the Memory Game that I

I used my Silhouette Cameo and the Silhouette Designer Edition to design this preschool puzzle.

I used the elements in the set to make the pieces and used one of the papers out of the set to put on top of the puzzle.
Here you can see that when I designed the puzzle the back piece of the puzzle had finger holes, so that you can easily take the pieces back out. 
To make the puzzle I used 3 layers of chipboard and two layers of cardstock.  I put those together with Modge Podge.  The pieces felt like a wood puzzle after it dried.
Thanks for stopping by!  Check out the gallery at Peppermint Creative to see more hybrid projects and scrapbook pages using the Little Learner Kit.
