Lilly is my neighbor’s five year old granddaughter. Lilly really likes cheetahs. Her grandmother told me she also likes jigsaw puzzles, so I combined the two ideas and made her a jigsaw puzzle from images of cheetahs. I added a custom box, painted and lined in her favorite colors of pink and purple, with an image of the puzzle on the top. The fourth and fifth images show a little kitty in a bigger kitty that are embedded in the puzzle. The last photo shows the puzzle boxed up ready to gift wrap for Lilly.

The 8 1/2” by 11” image was mounted on quarter inch baltic birch plywood, and was cut into 123 pieces using Flying Dutchman puzzle blades.

Thanks for looking.
