Don't throw out those puzzles that are missing some pieces, use them to make a frame. You will need glue, yarn, cardboard, and construction paper, puzzle pieces and something to frame (an award, certificate, child's drawing or picture). Center your picture on construction paper and trace around and cut out. Cut out cardboard to match the size of the construction paper. Place your picture between your cardboard and construction paper, glue everything into place. Now you can begin your puzzle frame. Connect some pieces of puzzle together and glue onto the corners of the construction paper matting fill in the rest of the frame with single pieces of the puzzle. Glue some yarn to the back to hang.
