The fastest way to assemble a puzzle guest book

I’m sort of a puzzle expert. I know lots of ways to make assembling puzzles easier.

Here are some tricks for assembling four types of my guest book puzzles. Follow these directions in sequence and I guarantee you’ll spend a lot less time solving your puzzle.

 

PHOTO puzzles:

  • Align your puzzle pieces image-side-up

  • Separate straight-edged pieces from the rest
  • Assemble these edge pieces
  • Find pieces that “interact” with the letters/numbers/shapes – they will have unusually shaped knobs and edges
  • Fill in the gaps with the remaining puzzle pieces

 

TREE puzzles

  • Align all pieces with woodgrain running same direction
  • Start with tree trunk pieces (they’ll be easy to find)
  • Find the “mate” for one knob at a time

WOOD puzzles and LOVE puzzles

  • Separate straight-edged pieces from the rest
  • Assemble these edge pieces
  • Find pieces that “interact” with the letters/numbers/shapes – they will have unusually shaped knobs and edges
  • Align all remaining puzzle pieces with wood grain running same direction
  • Find the “mate” for one knob at a time

One last tip: If you are getting a LOVE, WOOD, or TREE puzzle, the front and back sides of the puzzle pieces are identical. Tricky, right? I lightly pencil numbers on the back side of each piece for you. It will eliminate about half of your guesswork and it will help you assemble the puzzle much faster.
