I have a two sided puzzle, it’s a nightmare. The two pictures aren’t that different, they’re both skiing scenes. Definitely do this.

That’s adorable!

Worse would be two sides of the same thing. The pictures would belong but the shapes would be wrong :slightly_smiling_face:

Flip them and it would be worse.

Much opportunity here for evil laughter :slightly_smiling_face:

Haha then we both are. I just got in 400 lbs a couple of weeks ago and fixing to have to order more.

Sorry, my post is missing some text. I scanned and printed out the cereal box artwork on glossy photo paper. I then spray mounted the paper onto Medium Draftboard. I suppose you could just laser cut the real cereal boxes? Or mount the box right to some other chipboard.

I"m going to try mounting a cereal box to thin plywood. We’ll see how that comes out…

Use the same exact image, but rotate one of them 180*.

Mine was just the carton laminated to 1mm chipboard, using the HDX generic 3M-77 adhesive. Very similar to a “regular” jigsaw puzzle.

Yes but if you cut the puzzle so all the pieces were the same size and shape? like this

What thickness (pt) do you use?

Ah, except for those of us who suffer from “buy tons of supplies for projects we totally intend to do someday but somehow never get around to” disease.
