I am always watching for unique notecards, stationary and greeting cards when I go to estate sales, flea markets and thrift shops. I recently found some "PuzzleGrams" at a local thrift shop. These cards were new and in their original packages. Some of the cards were rectangular and some were heart-shaped. I decided to buy some of these cards to make thank-you notes for the Christmas gifts that I received. The retangular Puzzlegrams are cut into twelve puzzle pieces. You write a personal message on the card, take the puzzle pieces apart, put them in an envelope and mail them. The person who receives this card will be very surprised when they discover a puzzle in the envelope. When they put the pieces together, they will be able to read the message.
Here are some pictures that I took while I made a PuzzleGram:
