Greeting Card Puzzle

This craft reprinted courtesy of MakingFriends.com.

Recycle those cute Valentine’s cards to bring smiles all year long as easy puzzles for the youngest crafters.


Greeting Cards
Tacky Glue
Jumbo Craft Sticks
Exacto-Knife with Sharp Blade

Note: Exacto-Knives should only be used by a responsible adult.


Cut off the front of the card and trim up or cut into a shape. Lay out enough craft sticks to fit the card.

 Use tape to hold them together on the back side. Spread a layer of tacky glue over the back of the card.

Burnish down the card so all edges adhere.

Wipe off any excess glue with a damp cloth. Let dry.

Remove tape from back. Use a sharp exacto knife to slice through the card where the craft sticks meet.
