The Magic of Chipboard

Grapevine Designs is designing and cutting chipboard words and images to meet the requests of our customers. Many new words and phrases are available. A common question we get is "what can I do with the chipboard?" Our staff team is going to have a lot of fun showing you what you can do to transform basic chipboard into a featured item in your crafting project.

These words are very simple. The font elegant enough to fit on any scrapbook page, card or shadow box. Today we are going to talk about adding "BLING" to your chipboard. This simple technique of blinging out the chipboard is quick and is very easy to match your current project.

Paint or gesso can be applied with a paint brush directly onto the chipboard. It takes less than 10 minutes to dry. In this sample self-adhesive dots from Els Craft Designs are being applied. The artist (our own Amanda) is changing up the sizes and colors to decorate the word. You can use any brand of three dimensional self adhesive bling or you can use Zip Dry, 3 in 1 glue or your favorite liquid glue to glue down rhinestones.

The finished BLING sample is a magic touch to any project! Remember Paper Vineyard can cut your custom words, if you want to bling out a name, place or thing of your choice just let us know.

Happy Crafting,
