Todays chipboard tutorial is on how to apply designer series paper (dsp) to your chipboard. To do this, you will need: a piece of chipboard (a star from On Board Simon Upper used here); a piece of dsp big enough to cover chipboard (East Coast Prep used here); a glue stick; sanding block; cutting mat and a hobby blade. By the way, did you know that until the end of May, you can get a FREE hobby blade with the purchase of our 12″x18″ cutting mat?
Once you have your supplies together, simply apply your glue to the chipboard and mount your chipboard to the back of your dsp. All glue sticks are not created equal so be sure to use one that sticks really well – I used the Stampin’ Up! Anywhere glue stick. Now you are ready to cut around the edges with your hobby blade. With this star shape – it is simple to get really close straight lines. If you are going around the edges of a flower or other curved image, it is a little more challenging, but don’t be too concerned about being perfect.
