Start by attaching a bunch of blocks together to form a surface for the picture. This can be a simple rectangle or any fiendishly complicated shape that you want to use. Press the blocks firmly together so that the picture can be applied evenly.

Step #2: Apply the Picture

  • Next select a picture to use for the puzzle. Scale it to the appropriate size on your computer, and then print it out on self-adhesive photo paper.
  • Alternatively, you can use regular photo paper and spray adhesive. Carefully apply the picture to the block frame. Press the picture down firmly to ensure that it is well adhered to the blocks.

Step #3: Cut out the Pieces

Finally you’ll need to cut out the individual blocks. Take a sharp knife and gently fit it into the groove between two blocks. Carefully slide the blade along the groove to cut the picture into pieces. Once all the blocks are cut out, press down on all the cut edges to make sure that they are properly adhered to the block.
