    Cheap way to save a puzzle

    For those who read this and want to try an inexpensive solution: use cork bulletin board without a frame and the thinfoil cling film (the wrapping plastic foil which is very clingy to itself, known as Saran Wrap).How to do it? First put the big puzzle on the bulletin board. The board must be a rectangle without any frames.

You can also secure the cling film plastic at the back with duct tape, so it doesn't unwrap. Then it's really ready to hang.Please let me know here if you have success with this method, it was completely my idea and I love the result. The idea is to save the puzzle from glue to have it available at any time by tearing away the thin film foil.
