DIY Chipboard Tutorial by Virginia


Virginia Lu created a tutorial with a simple and fun formula; Diecut + Coffee Sleeves = Personalized Chipboard!

Gather the supplies and chose the diecut shape that you want to use;



Run the Cuttlebug/Big Shot like you normally die cut the pieces (bottom-A plate, middle-C plate, diecut piece facing up, coffee sleeves, B plate on top);



After cutting them out, you can stamp or paint them. Here I painted the "chipboard" with Rangers Acrylic Paint Dabbers (Sunshine Yellow, Red Pepper,Sunset Orange), let dry;



You can add more colors and textures by stamping over the chipboard;



You can choose any size or shape to customize them for your card or scrapbook layout. The best thing is that SRM Stickers work so beautifully with them;



And...the results!







Thank you, Virginia! We have another tutorial for you tomorrow, be sure to stop by the Blog!
