TLC344 Cover Chipboard With Paper


Hello everyone...it's my turn to host the Technique Lover's Challenge on Splitcoast!! I love to use chipboard and what better way to decorate it than to cover it with patterned paper...easy peasy challenge this week!!
First, I lay the chipboard piece on the pattern paper and draw around the shape and cut it out. I like to use a glue stick to adhere the paper to the chipboard and then I use an emery board to sand the edges. I have a real small, skinny one for the small curves edges...works great!!

My project is a chipboard coaster wall hanging...the cute little Maya Road chipboard tree and sun were covered with various papers as was the background. The sentiment from the Whiff of Joy 2009 Fall Stamp Kit was cut up and adhered to the sky area and the rick rack, leaf buttons laced with twine, and the clip with ribbon finish it off.

This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Dream Valley Challenges - buttons
2. ECP Challenge - use 6 different pattern papers (I used a different paper for the tree trunk, tree leaves, sky, grass, sun, and sun ring
3. Just Some Lines Challenge - fall colors
4. Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge - Autumn days
5. Crafting for all seasons Challenge - Fall colors


Thanks for stopping by...hope to see your projects in the TLC gallery!!!

Ah, I was wondering how anyone could make something with 6 different papers, now I see how it's done, lol. And I was also wondering today how to cover small chipboards and coasters with paper, and you've gone and explained that too! You're a mine of information today, Joan :)

I love the bright happy look of this, and the sentiment is so nice. Lovely job! CoB
