If you got popsicle / craft sticks, you've got good use for upcycling them into simple puzzles that even those with tiny hands can handle! Plus, it's easy to assemble, but with a little advanced technology, thanks to your home computer and a little squeeze of Mod Podge Photo Transfer Medium!

Step 1: Materials

What you need to do my take on this simple puzzle are...

  • popsicle / craft sticks
  • scissors
  • masking tape
  • sponge brush or large paint brush
  • Mod Podge Photo Medium Transfer
  • calloused sponge (not shown)
  • X-acto knife (not shown)
  • Optional: Matte or Gloss Mod Podge
<p>Do you just use regular printing paper for the images?</p>
Yes, but you have to use a dry ink toner / printer to prevent smearing of the ink, and also, your images have to be printed in mirror effect or reverse, because you're using Photo Transfer Medium to transfer to designs onto the sticks or any other wood surface you plan on using.
Love it! Can't wait to try it myself! I especially like the idea of sending someone a mystery puzzle. I'm only sorry that my grand daughter's birthday has already passed. She'd love it!
