Spooky Cuties Block Puzzle - SVG Cuts DT Project.

Hello friends!
Happy Friday!
I've got ANOTHER SVG Cuts project to share with you today -
that's twice in one week!
(That's the first that's EVER happened... and I can promise that it probably won't happen again!)
I have ANOTHER SVG Cuts project to share with you NEXT WEEK...
so you're really in for a special treat :)

Today - I want to share a project inspired by one of my fave toys from my childhood.
As much as I loved to do the puzzle, I always thought about how fun it would be to make one these.
I guess I had a creative mind from way back :)

So... what I'm sharing with you is a BLOCK PUZZLE!

Super duper cute, isn't it?
It ALMOST looks like it's store bought -
so it makes a perfect gift for kids!
Change them to Thanksgiving or Christmas cuties and you've got a holiday gift ready!

It's actually super simple to make!
I took the die file from here, (deleted all the circles of the die)
and made nine of them. 
I created a simple picture to go on each side of the puzzle, 
making sure that it took up pretty much the whole dimension of those nine blocks.
I chose these cuties characters
something that's easy to cut, yet a picture that kids would appreciate!
I cut them up equally into 9 pieces, 
adhered them on each of the blocks,
and mod podged them.
Finally - I created a box to fit the puzzle in, using a file from here, adding in a window.

I created this using a paper collection from Echo Park - 
Chillingsworth Manor.
I chose a background paper to be different for EACH side of the puzzle,
so one can easily look at the paper and know what side to use!

I've also created a 'reference picture' adhered to the back of the box,
so any kid can use that to put it together.

It can be easily made by bringing the 'print and cut' files in the Extras folder on to the mat,
and then printing them up directly from your software :)

Off topic a bit...
don't you just love those little felt cuties hanging out together in the back?
I saw them in the store, and just HAD to get them!

Love this little devil all glittered up in red...
He's such a cutie with a mischievous look.
Just like my son :)

Think this is my favorite side :)

So... are you all inspired to make one of these now?
All you need are these kits:
(you won't need this if you decide to use different pictures)

Then, once you have these files - 
head on over to the SVG Cuts blog for detailed file dimensions and instructions :)

Thanks for coming by - 
hope that you have yourself a FABULOUS weekend!
