|Wood shapes and chip board come in a vast variety of adorable options.|
The frustrating part is that they seldom come in the
color or pattern to match my current projects.
|Using my Fiskar exacto-knife, Tombow multipurpose glue, a cutting mat, |
and a bit of patterned paper I will show you how I turn
this wood shape into a beautiful embellishments to match my project.
|Since I want to show the green side of this paper I will glue |
my wood shape onto the reverse side of the paper.
|I like the controlled tip applicator of the Tombow Multipurpose glue.|
|I place the glue side down and gently add pressure to insure a secure |
and even bond of paper and wood. Using a stylus
I clean up any glue oozing from the sides before it dries.
|Using my Fiskar exacto-knife I carefully cut the paper close to the edges of the wood shape.|
|When I have completely cut around the shape |
it is ready to be inked, misted, glittered, or added to my project just as it is.
This same technique works great with chipboard shapes and alphabets.
I would love to hear what techniques you use on chipboard and wood shapes.
