Thanks for stopping by for another Tuesday Tutorial!!! 🙂 Hope you are having a GREAT day and BOY O BOY do I have something REALLY great to share with you! 🙂 I can’t wait to show you more because my new “family” members are just awesome and have helped me perfect something I’ve really struggled with getting right everytime I do it!
Covering Chipboard! Have you ever wondered if there was a secret formula to really covering chipboard? Do you ever get totally frustrated trying to trace with an Xacto knife and you still end up with some jagged edges that just drive you crazy? Do you try to sand off the edges and it still doesn’t seem quite right? I know that I’ve had those troubles. I never seem to be able to trace and cut my shapes out perfectly, and now I’ve met my solution!!! I’m so excited!
In this video I show how I finished off a basic square shape which is pretty easy, but in a video coming up, we are going to show a much more intricate shape as well – so you can REALLY see how great these things work.
Right now, lets dive into a really fun gift project. You’ll see how I used:
- 7 Gypsies Metal book Handles
- 7 Gypsies Gator Clips
- K&Company Urban Rhapsody Paper
- Tim Holtz Word Sticks
- Tim Holtz Tokens
- Viva Decor Pearl Pens
- How to Ink Edges of designs
I really hope you enjoy and I can’t wait to share more with you later!

Another Great video. Love the wall hanging.
So Cute! I love the big brother and little sis as well, I could have used those when I was making my altered clipboard. Thanks
Really love this….I have been wanting to make these for some time now….Thanks….
Love the wall hanging- Need to get more 7 Gypsies stuff
Very cute project!!! What a great idea!!! I’ve got to look for 7 Gypsies stuff. Haven’t seen it around here anywhere.
Megan, did you also cover the back of the chipboard so it can be flipped over? What a cute idea. I will try it. Thanks.
Very nice project, and a lovely gift idea! Have to look for the Brother & Sister tools. BethAnn
lovely work Megan, TFS 🙂
THAT IS SUCH A GREAT IDEA FOR A GIFT! THANK YOU
I love this project. Would work great for a number of reasons for gifts. I could also see this done with like a chalk board type for a dormroom for college students.
Megan…. This came out sooo cute… it makes me want to make something like that for someone… But I don’t have all those wonderful tools you have! LOL
Now I must go shopping for supplies… Thanks for the great idea! 🙂 Have a wonderful day! 🙂
Very neat idea. There are so many different things that can be done with this wall hanging.
Thanks for sharing.
Great project. Still looking for the viva decor pens.
I love this. Will be doing this project as gift for my mum. She’ll be able to put up her favorate pictures of her gandbabies on it.
I never completed a chipboard project as I needed some instructions. Thanks so much.
I really liked your idea of the wall hanging. I am in the process of decorating my grandson’s room with pictures of past family members so that he knows his background. This wall hanging is going to work so well. Thanks for the idea.
Love the wall hanging Megan!! Great job!! Gives me an idea for G3!
Wonderful project Megan. Definitely have to incorporate this project in my Grandaughters nursery. Thanks for all the tips.
This is a great project. I do not now anything about these 7 gypsies products. Thanks for showing me what they were.
It is a very cute wall hanging Megan. I brought one of those stamp caddies that you were showing the other day, I was very disappointed in it. 🙁
Cute project for the wall. I, also, am not very familar with 7 Gypsies products. Will have to try them soon.
I love love love this. My granddaughter is getting a new cowgirl room and this will be precious to put on the wall with her horseback riding pictures. Thank you so much for the ideas!
Thanks for sharing that great, easy project, Megan!
Great idea! I am looking for ideas for easy decor for my daughter’s room.
loved it. where do you get the thing to sand edges.
I love the wall hanging! Great Idea
Very nice. Thanks for the help
Such a cute project! I love it! And thanks for the tip on using the sponge brush with the ink, never tried that. I always wondered why my inked edges were never as dark or heavy as most projects/pages/cards I’d seen, now I know. 🙂
Nice and easy to follow instructions on the chipboard demo. I’m going to try this as I need some new wall decorations for narrow areas. Always enjoy trying new things and chipboard is new to me. Thanks.
Love the wall hanging Megan!!!
Megan, thanks for showing and sharing this video. I have 12 x 12 chipboard that is too thick to put thru my cricut machine. I was trying to think of something I could make using those chipboards and now I know. We have a hobby lobby in our area and they carry 7 gypsies products. Again thanks so much. Keep the ideas coming..
Really cute project! Me & my daughter are always looking for cool things to make for Christmas presents & this would be great for showcasing my little grandbaby 🙂
Really cute gift idea. TFS
Love this project. I went to 7 Gypsies to look for the gator clips. the ones they show don’t have the little hook. Do you have a parts number for those or if you can help me i would appreciate so much. Helen
Such a clever project. I can think of so many different ways to use it. Thank you for the video.
Great project I like all of it and what a great gift idea, that sander looks like an awesome tool. thanks for sharing.
Loved your chipboard project!
What a great idea, I Love It. Thanks for the info.
I love everything you have on your website. The only problem that I have is that I have a somewhat slow internet connection, so very often, I do not have time to watch the videos. Could you include written instructions that I could print out?
Cute, cute, cute !!!
As always, another great video. I learn so much from them.
Sooo cool!! Big Bro & Lil Sis are an amazing tools!! Love the wall hanging! Thanks for your idea!! ~ S W E E T ~
Off topic…wondering if you could tell me if you can cut the clear plastic outer packaging from Cricut Cartridges with a Cricut machine? I love the look of “ghost shapes” and “ghost letters”, but wasn’t sure how to approach cutting this material. Have you tried it? Seems like a green thing to do…especially if you buy a lot of carts! tee hee!
Great video and I love the wall hanging!
Instead of using your fingers try folding a bit of wax paper or wrap it around your fingers before smearing the glue. It does not stick to your project, smears the glue evenly, and keeps your fingers clean!
Wow, that was GREAT!!!!!!!!!! Like it very MUCH!!!!
Awesome project Megan! Love the sanding blocks and the 7 Gypsies hardware!
hi never thought i would like to do chipboard—but your project is wonderfull— guess i’ll give it a try thanks
