Magnetic Jigsaw Stocking Filler Idea


Some of my family came to visit over the weekend and I went shopping with Mum, all of the shops had their Christmas stock in so we took the opportunity to do some early Christmas shopping. I totally feel ready to start my Christmas projects now and I’m going to start right now as today’s project would be a great idea for a home made stocking filler (stuffer). I saw some A4 printable magnetic sheets in my local pound shop, 2 sheets for £1, bargain huh? As soon as I saw them I knew that I wanted to make some magnetic jigsaws for my little nieces and nephews, personalised with their own photographs on, to play with on the fridge.

So today I have a Jigsaw pattern for you, it has quite large pieces so it’s ideal for younger children, it only has 9 pieces, I will be posting a different Jigsaw pattern with more pieces another day. I have the Jigsaw cut file for you and a printable template version too if you fancy being brave and cutting it out by hand.

I printed my photograph onto my magnetic sheet then cut a practice jigsaw and laid my image face down in the same spot for perfect placement. I cut the jigsaw shape 3 or 4 times (double cut) to ensure that the sheet had cut all of the way through as the magnetic sheets I have are a bit thicker than card stock. This is how it looks on my fridge (this is not my child which is why I covered her face):

    OMG this is so cute, what a neat idea. I have seen cutting files for the puzzles before but I was never able to do them. I just gave this a whirl (on regular paper though ’cause I can’t seem to find my magnet paper and I didn’t want to wait, lol) and it worked. Awesome, thank you!! (Now going hunting for my magnet paper).

    Forgive my ignorance, but can I use this file with a regular cricut machine and cricut craft room? Or do I need a different machine? Thanks
