Altered Puzzle Pieces


Challenges:
My darling hubby bought me a set of three kids puzzles from the Dollar General, it had this great box which you will be seeing altered soon. I has a sliding top. The puzzle pieces are I think compresses paper, or something, Its not wood, but its very sturdy.


 This is the front and back of one first just after adding paper, the second after I sanded it and then added distress ink.


Here it is all decorated. I loved it so much I made a second one. These are in the mail tomorrow for a couple of special friends. I had so much fun with these. I just took my tim holtz pokey thing to make the hole at the top, just worked it for a couple of minutes to get it through, then added a big jump ring and then smaller ones for more charms. 

my arrow is on this one
