Altered Puzzle Pieces

My crafty pal Audio asked me if I wanted to do a couple of pieces for an altered puzzle, and I said heck yeah! I've wanted to do a whole puzzle for a while now, but just never got around to it. Anyhoo, here are the 2 pieces I did for her.
The top one is a silly owl wearing a hat, saying "Hoo-ya!" instead of "Boo-ya!" which is one of my favorite phrases.
For this one, I used an art print of mine, along with that rad foil stuff along the border, and then some purple jaquard pigment powder and gum arabic to add a little bit of shimmer and fun :) Anyway, I hope everyone is having a good weekend! Mine's going pretty good, and it's my birthday tomorrow! Probably gonna go on a picnic or something. Happy Sunday, friends.

Oh, wow! First, these are really cool. Second, I'd never heard of altered puzzles before. Now, I really want to do one!

I was googling/looking into buying some Marvy Uchida paper punches when I came across your Rinchies post...have decided that I will just cut out cirlces. Thanks. And it was a real bonus to find your site and see your lovely work. Happy Birthday.

Is this a regular size puzzle piece or a large child sized puzzle piece? What do you do with the individuals? Do you make them into pendants, rings or ? If so, how? Thanks!
