Buttons Jigsaw Puzzle Assembly...

As you can see in the following photos, I used my typical layout method. I did not bother to sort the pieces according to main colors because it was only 5oo pieces and because the colors are just too random. Therefore my first round of sorting was for the border pieces only, then the pieces were laid out onto the poster board.

The first choices of buttons to assemble went from the largest ones, then the unique ones like the brass-types and lastly the size of the button being the next largest to the smallest.

What also made this such a quick one was the size of the pieces. Being the large format was easier to pick out the button colors filling up the size of the rather large size of the image more quickly too. As you can also see, the shapes of the pieces on the foam board are ribbon or grid cut and not random shapes. Some puzzlers prefer this typical type of cut over random or ‘wanky’ cut pieces. I am acceptable to  almost any type of cut at this point.

The above photo shows the completely assembled image in it’s lovely array of colors. Some of these buttons may look familiar from way back in the day. Perhaps your Mom’s button jar had a few of these as I recognize some that my Mom did.

Here are some nice close up images to see the clean cut of the quality pieces Ravensburger is so famous for. The colors are accurate and the pieces fit taut. This little 500 piece has all the qualities of a perfect puzzle.

The Buttons Jigsaw Puzzle is a quick fix for those puzzlers that like colours – and enough of them too. The Ravensburger 500 large format pieces, titled Buttons, is a delightful way to spend 3-4 hours of your day.

I have also have the pleasure of assembling the Tropical Island by Ravensburger.
