Make Your Pages Pop with Chipboard

January 10, 2009


Getting tired of having one dimensional pages? You can add easy flair and pizzaz to your pages with easy to use, economical chipboard.

Just in case you didn’t know what chipboard is, I’ll give you a little scrapper history – Chipboard is basically pressed fibers that are really thick. And most of the time it is green meaning it is made from recycled paper. Its undyed form is the brown cardboard color we have all seen. If you haven’t used chipboard before, you still probably have it in your house. It has been used for years as the backing to notepads or spiral notebooks and other stacks of paper.

Here’s how to make personalized bling for your page:

step1 Take your chipboard and trace it onto your Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper
step2 Using your Paper Snips Scissors, cut out the shape you just traced.
step3 Using the Tombow Multipurpose Adhesive, affix adhesive onto one side of the cut out shape and then gently attach the shape to the chipboard.
step4 If you notice that the edges need more trimming, trim the edges using your Paper Snips Scissors.  If the edges are too close to the chipboard to trim, use your Sanding Block and gently sand the edges down.
step5 If you like, you can take a Stampin’ Write Marker and color in the edges or you can simply leave the edges their natural color.

Viola you now have a custom made embellishment that will add beauty to your page.

Additional Ideas:

  • Use Stampin’ Up!s Rub-Ons to further decorate your new chipboard bling!
  • Use the Cropadile to punch a hole in the chipboard and then string a beautiful ribbon from Stampin’ Up! through it… tie a beautiful bow.
  • Instead of using Designer Paper, stamp a few images onto Stampin’ Up! Card Stock and then cut out!
  • Using a Uni-ball Signo White Gel Pen, make fake stitches around the edges of the covered chipboard!
