Place the puzzle template face down on the wood tile square. Place a hot iron (no steam!) on the template and leave for 1 minute. Do not move the iron once it is placed, the template moves easily and it will smudge the image. Lift up the iron and let the template cool to room temperature.
Run the exacto knife between each tile to separate them. Remove the tape from the backside of the tiles. Place the tiles in the treat bag and fold down the open edge. Repeat steps 2-5 for each remaining puzzle.
