More June Tips & Tricks

by Jana Lillie

In Tips & Tricks in the June 2009 issue (see p. 107), we shared fun ways to dress up chipboard, mimic the look of chalk, create custom party favors and more. Following are additional details not found in the magazine!


Cover Plain Chipboard with Patterned Paper

Love how April Massad created decorative flowers from plain chipboard for her "Summer Time" page? Here's how she created the look:


1. Take a plain chipboard shape (in this case, a flower) and place it face-up on a piece of patterned paper.


2. Lightly trace around the chipboard shape with a pencil.


3. Cut out the traced shape with scissors, and then apply it with a glue stick to the top of the plain chipboard shape.


4. Wait a few minutes, and then flip the chipboard shape over and trim off any excess paper with a craft knife.


5. To help the patterned paper visually blend into the chipboard, sand the edges.
