Techniques for using chip board

Hi all! Kelli here with a  tutorial which is all about chipboard! Here we go!!

Chipboard Covered With Paper

1. Adhesive sheets (a retired product from CTMH that I purchased sooooooo many packages of when the retired) or any adhesive of your choice.
2. Dimensional Elements from CTMH, otherwise known as Chipboard! In letters and shapes.

3. Finishing Files by CTMH were the perfect tool to finish the edges of my letters. You can use your
favorite sanding tools!


* Trace your letter or shape onto your adhesive sheet
* Trace your letter face down onto the "wrong" side of the paper you're using to cover your chipboard
* Adhere the adhesive sheet to the chipboard
* Adhere the paper to the chipboard
* Use your finishing tools to file off the excess paper around the edges of the chipboard

If you are not using adhesive sheets, use the same tracing method directly onto your paper and follow the remaining steps adhering your paper to the chip board with an adhesive of your choice.

Co-ordinating 3D letters for you Project is easy and fun!

Chipboard Sprayed With Homemade Glimmer Mist

This glimmer spray paint is super shinny and glittery when light reflects one way on it.

Then you see the rich close to my heart colour when the light reflects another way.

It's very scientific!! Not! Very Simple! Yes!

Mix 50 % Create a Shade Glimmer paint by Close to My Heart and 50% alcohol (you can get it at you local $1 store) Now add as much Colour Re-inker in your Favorite Close to My Heart Shade to get your desired colour in a small spray bottle (again your local $1 store). Shake it up really well and you get a fabulous glimmer spay paint that you can use for many different projects!

Simple, Cheap, Beautiful!
