Puzzled...

It's time to "piece" together how you feel about your spouse! This may take a little planning depending on what you choose to do:

If you want to do it the easy way, you can upload a picture online and have a real puzzle printed for you (This could be a fun date night).

Walmart.com sells these easy personalized puzzles for $12.84


Walgreens.com sells an 8x10 puzzle (110 pieces) for $14.99.
Or, I found this site which sells an 8x10 puzzle in either 110 pieces or 30 jumbo pieces for $11.70

*****************

Now, in keeping with my romance ideas on a budget... I recommend these ideas that cost $1.00 or less!

  • Michael's (or any other craft store) and dollar stores usually sell cardboard or wooden puzzles that you can paint or write a message on, mod-podge and exacto-knife, etc. (see my example below)
  • Buy a large posterboard (the thin paper style) that you can write, paint, etc. your message on, then cut out into your own puzzle pieces. Hide each piece around the house (in semi-obvious places) for him to find and then put together.

Here are some message/theme ideas for your puzzle:

  • You complete me.
  • I go to pieces when I think about you…
  • You’re the missing piece to my puzzle.
  • I love you to pieces. You keep me together.
  • You keep me from falling to pieces.
  • We fit together…you’re my missing piece!
  • You puzzle me.
  • I’m puzzled by you…


    Here is what I did with my wooden puzzle from Michael's:

I bought this for $1....


Painted it with acrylic paint and wrote on it with permanent marker.
Front side looks like this (obviously yours will look MUCH better than my lamo demo version)

Back side:



Puzzle Pieces

Once again, you've got a CHEAP idea that took little effort and will leave your love puzzled as to how they ever found a love as good as yours! (hehe--I do try hard to make up these corny ending messages!)
