PuzzleGrams

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:

This is what the PuzzleGram
 looked like when I took it
 out of the package.


I wrote a thank-you note on the
PuzzleGram with a permanent

marker.


I took the pieces apart and put them in
 an envelope.


I have one PuzzleGram card that I would like to give to the first reader who posts a comment on this blog post.  Please leave an email address so that I can contact you.  I will mail this item to any address in the world for NO CHARGE.
Thank you for visiting my blog.  Do you have ideas for unique or unusual notecards? I would like to hear from you.

  4. Love the idea of taking the same old thank you note up a notch. Very appealing to someone like me who can't walk by a jigsaw puzzle without stopping and putting in at least one piece.

    I love to make handmade cards.
