Puzzle Frame Prayer Reminder

A volunteer at The Voice of the Martyrs decorated a picture frame with puzzle pieces to hold a photo of a Christian featured in VOM publications or on VOM websites. She attached the photo from this post to the frame.

Follow the instructions below to make your own puzzle piece frame.

Needed
*About 24 pieces from a discarded jigsaw puzzle.
*Cardboard or cardstock.
*A photo from a VOM publication or printed from a VOM website. (Variation: Use a photo of a courageous Christian in your community.)
*White glue.
*Optional: Mod Podge (decoupage medium).

Instructions
*Cut out the photo, leaving a 1 ½ – inch margin on all sides.

*To make a frame, cut a piece of cardboard or cardstock the same size as the photo, including the margins. Cut out the center of the cardboard leaving a 1 ½ – inch margin on all sides.

*Glue a layer of puzzle pieces single file to the frame, leaving space between the pieces.

*When dry, glue a second layer on top of the spaces between the pieces in the first layer.

*Optional: Apply Mod Podge (decoupage medium) to the puzzle pieces to make them shiny. Let it dry.

*Glue the photo to the back of the frame so the photo shows through to the front. If desired, add a label below the photo with the name of a country or a person.

*Hang up the photo, or if you want to make a stand for the framed photo, fold a 12-inch long by 1 ½ – inch wide cardboard strip into a right triangle, and tape the end shut. Glue or tape one leg of the triangle to the back of the picture vertically so that the stand sits flat on a surface and holds up the photo.

*Pray for the Christian when you see his or her photo.
