Does anyone have any tips for gluing a jigsaw puzzle? I am not a jigsaw person but my in laws found and put together the cutest quilt puzzle for me. I would like to frame it.

You can buy puzzle glue and then glue it to cardboard. That is how I have always seen it done.

I have never done it but I would think decopage glue would work great, fill in the cracks, but still leave some texture.

I have used the puzzle glue it is called puzzle pro. Also I have heard of others that took school glue as it dries clear. Just make sure you get it in all the cracks.Let dry , turn over and do it from the back side also :thumbup:

I would glue it from the back first, and then maybe have it framed, or do it yourself behind glass. No reason to slather the front with anything.

Thats what I used for the Jigsaw puzzle my daughter gave me for Christmas. Got it a Target for like $5 or so. It did a real nice job and even seeped through to the cardboard I had on its backside. After it dried real good I had my wife take it to the Framer and they matted and framed it for me and I have it in my Studio now.

Of course it was a quilting themed puzzle!!!

Timely question... when i was on vacation, I visited a new quilt shop and found the most adorable puzzle with cats & ducks. I picked up some Hodge Podge at the local craft store. The clerk warned me to only use it on non-humid days or it would dry tacky and stay that way forever.

Good luck to both of us. I haven't had a dry day yet! :(

Huge thank-you to all that replied. I have the modge podge and was hoping it dried clear. I have to doctor the 2 spaces that have missing puzzle pieces...yep brand new puzzle in a sealed box, just one of the reasons I don't do puzzles but this one is so cute and i had volunteers to actually do the puzzle....I will post a pic if anyone wants to see it.
thanks bunchs
