    I cut this 6x8 puzzle for a friend's birthday (still need to sign and date it).
    I tried a little bit of color line cutting around the cow's head, particularly the cow's black and white markings on her head, the ears and the muzzle. The flowers were a little trickier for me, not quite at that level of cutting yet...

    I'm thinking of cutting another one with the grey cloudy sky cut out of it so that the puzzle is only the cow with the sunflowers...

    Nice work. My first freehand cutting (Christmas tree card) could almost be split down the middle by pulling from the top two corners. I think it would look great with the sky dropped out.

    My rookie suggestion. On the cow, instead of having your tabs going into the cow's ears have them extend from the cow's ears. Your tabs look like they lock really well.

    Congrats again.

      Nicely done and looking forward to the clouds being cut away in your next attempt...

          Great job, Eileen!

          Your puzzle has brightened my morning, and has also left me curiously thirsty for a glass of milk.

          Nice work!

              Great Puzzle! Looks like a typical cow..... right in the middle of where she doesn't belong!!

                Thanks for the comments everyone, especially the one about cutting the locks into the sky instead of into the cow's ears. One more thing to remember and plan out when color line cutting...

                    Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

                    As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

                    I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....

                    I shrink wrap all my puzzles. It is the best method I have found. I do not use a cardboard backer as some do. I use shrink wrap bags that I get from Amazon or Ebay. 8" x 12" will fit 95% of the puzzles I make.

                    To use the bags you will need a sealer. I have one very similar...

I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...
