One of my friends, who is a talented crafter, sent me this awesome wooden block photo puzzle in the mail. In the photo, I'm pictured with my pal Heidi Davenport. Each side has a different photo with a different person. I love it!

Isn't it adorable? It's so much fun to play with and I just had to Google around to find a couple tutorials so that I can learn how to make one myself. All you need are some wooden blocks, photos, scissors, adhesive and you're in business!

Check out these great tutorials and then go make your own. They would make great gifts for birthdays, weddings, Mother's Day or for anyone that has a special memory to keep.
