- Cricut Maker
- Knife Blade
- Cricut Heavy Duty Chipboard
- Light Grip Mat
- Strong Grip Mat
- ATG Gun
- Masking Tape
Step 1: Apply the Cricut Heavy Chipboard down onto the mat and secure down with masking tape.
Step 2: Change out your fine point blade for your Knife Blade. Be sure to also move all the white stars to the right side. This will keep your project from marks from the stars.
Step 3: Cut your first mat which is just a square. This will be your chipboard base.
Step 4: Remove from mat. You’ll see how easy it is to remove the masking tape which helps keeps the project secure while cutting.
Step 5: Now cut the puzzle out with your Cricut Heavy Duty Chipboard and Knife Blade. It will take 30-45 minutes and 20 cuts. Trust me, it is worth the wait for this quality! Be sure to connect with USB and set your computer to not go to sleep during this process, Cricut even recommends having its own dedicated browser tab just to make sure it doesn’t loose connection.
Step 6: Put the fine point blade back into clamp B and cut the cardstock of your choice out with the Light Grip Mat.
Step 7: Glue your puzzle pieces together! Use a dry adhesive for easy cleanup.
Step 8: Glue the border to the base of the puzzle.
Step 9: Now build your puzzle! You will love how easy this is every time! I cannot wait to make a few of these as gifts.
