Jig-Saw Angels



A fun little craft to make for anyone that loves to do puzzles.

I drew my pattern on card-stock, cut it out,
 traced it onto a scrap of 1 X 
from Steve's scrap pile, 
primed with white paint, and then 
used craft paint to decorate.

Do you have a friend that could use 
a team of puzzle angels 
to help them find the right pieces?

Happy Holidays.

    1. Hi Patricia, they were fun to make. The friend that I made them for is just a few years younger than I, but she has been in a wheel chair since a teenager. She loves to play cards, and bingo and she works on puzzles and bead-work almost everyday. I think she will like them.
      Happy Holidays.

    1. Hi, I love making paper snowflakes. The first time that my daughter and I made them, my husband was astounded, and I was amazed that he had never seen or made them as a child. It was something that I thought every kid had made in school, at one time or another.
      Good luck on the give-away.

    1. I have so much fun working in Steve's shop . . . there are three tools that he has made me promise not to touch . . . that's the table saw, the router, and the chain saw. All for safety reasons, but everything else is okay and I find that I use the band saw, miter saw and drill press the most. You can do a lot with those three tools. The trick is to not let yourself ever get distracted and to use all safety measures. Eyes and finger are something very dear to me :)
      Good luck on the give-away and Merry Christmas

    1. Hi Kathy, thank you . . . I saw puzzle angels made from paper and used as tree ornaments, that is where I got the idea. I wanted mine to be able to stand alone so that they could set on a shelf. I gave them to my friend, yesterday, she is wheelchair bound and has been for most of her life . . . she works on puzzles everyday and she also collects angels. Oh, she is a crater too, so she appreciates handmade gifts. I had the best day yesterday. I played and sang that morning at the assisted living where she lives and then went to a friends garage where a few friends gathered to jam all afternoon. I was starting to feel house bound so this was great!. Merry Christmas.
      Your blogging sister, Connie:)
