Dress Up That Chipboard!

 Looking for creative uses for chipboard?  Chipboard is economical and easy to alter, making it incredibly versatile to have in your stash.   Here’s a quick look at what you can do today:

Add  rhinestone dots or Opal/Pearl dots.
Apply dimensional glaze for a tiled effect.
Place drops of liquid pearls for added shimmer.
Outline a shape with dimensional glitter.
Cover with crackle medium and rub chalk into the cracks for extra pop.
Dab craft glue along edges and sprinkle with glitter.
Use a Crop-a-dile or “anywhere” punch and add holes in the chipboard design.
Colour it with ink.
Stamp it with a patterned stamp.
Cover with dimensional adhesive and sprinkle with micro beads while wet.
Heat emboss it for some shine.
Flock it for a fuzzy texture.
Spray it with Glimmer Mist.
Use rub ons to add detail.
Alter the colour with paint.

Have fun altering your chipboard! Feel free to show us what you’ve done in our Gallery. :0)
