Snow crystals!
If you have any puzzles that are missing pieces, they can be turned into great ornaments!

The possibilities with decorating these puzzlepieces are endless. Just think of them as a scrapbook project. You could cover them with pictures, fabric, yarn, glitter but you can also just paint them or glue things like rhinestones, feather or buttons onto them.

I may be sending these to my friends as christmascards and write a nice sentiment onto it.
