Hi everyone today is project number 3 of my Valentine’s Series 2018.
Jigsaw Puzzle & Gift Box with Hershey Kisses
I was given this wonderful Jigsaw die by a lovely lady called Ann. I received it way back last year but I’ve waited until now to use it in my Valentines Series.
I have tried looking for this exact one but not had any luck, however, I have found others. (Update I’ve since been told it is an old Tattered Lace one from their magazine subscriptions, Issue 41). A lady told me she managed to pick up a back copy from eBay.

To make today’s project you will need…
1 piece of 8.1/2 x 6.1/2 card stock for your box.
Score along the 8.1/2 side at 2″, 4″, 6″ & 8″
Score along the 6.1/2 side at 2″, 4″ & 6″I
5 pieces of 1.3/4 x 1.3/4 patterned paper to decorate the box. The papers I used were old Stampin Up ones.
I used small letter wood veneers which I heat embossed to decorate the box.
A photo of your choice and strong card to die cut the jigsaw out of a few times to make strong jigsaw pieces.
Check out my full tutorial below to see how I made these.
I added in some Hershey’s Kisses as a nice treat for the recipient to eat as they make the puzzle.
I also want to talk about the box a little more, the detail on the opening of this is unusual and gives a simple box a nice twist. This is a great 2 x 2 x 2 box however if you would like a slightly bigger one, I made the one below last year which measures 3 x 3 x 3 with the same unusual opening.
As I mentioned in my tutorial, this project would also be great for a hen party with funny pictures on the jigsaw or great for kids party bags, there are so many fun ways to use this die.
I hope you have fun with this and remember to share any of your makes over on my Facebook page Mixed Up Craft
Have a great day.
