Bloggers Challenge - Chipboard

This weeks bloggers challenge was to use chipboard in a project or on a card. Pretty easy for me - cause I love chipboard. I created a wedding squash book - my chipboard is covered by the Damask Notepad designer paper - perfect for a wedding! The sentiment is from Flourishes Wedding Essentials set, and the beautiful ribbon is also available at Flourishes.







Details for squash book:

  • 36 inches of ribbon
  • Chipboard (cut 2 - 5" x 5")
  • Patterned Paper (cut 2 - 6" x 6" )
  • Card Stock (cut 3 - 8 1/2" x 8 1/2", score in half, open and fold in half the other way, open and fold on a diagonal. You'll now have 2 squares and 4 triangles. Line up the squares in this order: facing up, facing down, facing up. Overlap the squares and attach with adhesive. Push the triangular sides in and "squash" into a square.
  • Cover your chipboard pieces with your patterned paper
  • To adhere ribbon, fasten it to the underside of one chipboard cover
  • Squash the album. Use sticky strip to adhere the covers to the album.
  • Tie the ribbon in the front to hold the book closed.
