I acquired a puzzle that had one piece missing. I scanned the picture on the puzzle box and enlarged the area of the missing piece, printed it out and glued it to cardboard (thickness of puzzle), cut to shape of missing piece.
Great whether you are saving the picture or passing it along to someone else!

I love getting quality toys for my granddaughter on Freecycle. I especially like the Melissa and Doug toys because they foster imagination and are high quality. I got a magnetic hide and seek puzzle that I know she will enjoy. I saw that this puzzle was missing two pieces. Unfortunately, Melissa and Doug does not sell replacement pieces. I was determined to save this puzzle from the landfill, and was pleased with the results.
I spent nothing on this project. I had the magnet and the cardboard already. Many businesses give the magnets out. My library gives free printing, and I printed what I needed out there, since I no longer own a color printer.
After I finished, I realized that this would be a great way to make a customized refrigerator magnet, too.
Total Time: 30 minutes at most
Yield: The refrigerator magnet I had was enough for 2 puzzle pieces.
