4E. Tangram Mix-up

Hint 1

You may need to use scissors a bit more than you expected. Fit the tangrams where they match a supplied shape. Strive for completion.

Hint 2

To figure out how the tangram shapes go together, you may need to give them all a stir. There are several possible combinations you need to try - only one of them gives a message.

Hint 3

The shapes really don't fit any of the black silhouettes. Just make a simple square, matching the half-square holes to make square holes. Fit it to a big square of the same size to reveal a message. When crossing over, keep the same orientation.
