I will show you how to make a Lego Jigsaw Puzzle Image.

Step 1: Step 1)

Picture of Step 1)

Build a Lego wall. I recommend making the wall 1 Lego stud wide, and as tall as you need for your photo.

Step 2: Step 2)

You will want to choose a image on your computer to print out (It is much easier to use sticker paper you can get this cheap at office stores). Tip: If you are using Microsoft Word set the page size to 100% to be accurate in size.

Step 3: Step 3)

Cut out the image to any size you would like. I recommend to cut out the background if you are doing a portrait. Next either stick it to the wall if you are using sticker paper or glue it to the lego wall.

Step 4: Step 4)

For this step you may want to get a adult to help you. With a razer blade cut all of the edges/sides of each Lego block so you can take the picture apart.

Step 5: Step 5)

You may want to do touch ups so just grab a sharpie and color over any spots that need to be fixed.

Step 6: Extras

If you want you can do extras! You can make a stand, add lights or anything you want! It is all up to you. If you need help or have a question you can put it in the comments and I will reply.

Interesting. This technique was in a recent issue of Make:Magazine. Is there a way to make the edges cleaner looking on the cuts?

Use an X-Acto knife (craft knife). you could also use a heated knife. I bought a wood burner (like a soldering iron type) to burn things into wood and it was a kit that included a X-Acto knife tip and it cuts through paper very well when its hot. just make sure whatever you use is extremely sharp! the sharper the tool the cleaner the cut.

Cool, I had a exact knife but i broke it.

I think if you screen printed your image onto the set of blocks that might work.

That is a good idea.

I do not know maybe a paper cutter. I am still trying to find one.
