This invention relates to an improved puzzle for greeting, Christmas, birthday cards and the i It is to be understood that the particulars herein given are in no way limitative, and that while still keeping within the scope of the invention, any desiredmodification of details and proportions may be made in the construction of the appliance according to circumstances.

In the drawing:-
Figure 1 is a view of a. greeting card showing the puzzle applied.
Figure 2 is a sectional view on line 22 of Figure 1.
Figure 3 is a view showing a cover for a cavity or depression in the card entirely detached to disclose the name of the sender of a card on the puzzle sections.
Figure 4 is a view of a card with the cover for the depression entirely removed, and a small envelope carried by the card sealed with the puzzle sections on the interior, a part of the small I envelope being broken away toshow that the puzzle sections are inside.
Figure 5 is a sectional view on line 5-5 of the present instance, a rectangular opening is first cut'through the card, and then the card is backed with an additional piece of paper 4. It
is obvious that any method to form the depression can be employed.
Mounted on the card and attached thereto adhesively is a relatively small envelope 5, which, when the card is purchased, is normally open.
Fastened adhesively to the face of the card and over the depression for the purpose of re-' taining the puzzle sections, matched together is a piece of thin paper 6, the under surface of which is carbonized at I for the purpose of transferring any writing, mark or symbol, preferably'the name of the sender, as identified at 8, to the faces of the puzzle sections.
When the card is first purchasedthe piece of paper is normally over the depression in the face of the card retaining the puzzle sections in positions and matched. The senders name is then written on the face, of the paper over the depression, and through the medium of the carbonized under surface the name is transferred to the puzzle sections. The sender then entirely removesthe cover of paper from over the depression and then removes the puzzle sections, and in their mixed order they are placed in the small envelope, the envelope being sealed. The sender then may place the entire card in any suitable envelope (not shown) and address it to any desired person, in which event the recipient opens the small envelope, removes the puzzle sections and matches themtogether in the depression, enabling the recipient of the card to ascertain the name of the sender.
