Hello everyone! Today I am going to share a fun, easy technique with you to give your chipboard a one-of-a-kind look (it's what I shared on the Helmar blog yesterday).
What you need:
* Chipboard Piece(s)
* Micro Beads
Now let's get started:
Take your chipboard piece, and paint it the color of your choice.
After your paint is dry, cover your piece with Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive.
Then cover with micro beads. These should be available at any craft store. Make sure you get the area pretty well covered, and don't be afraid to pour out more then you need because you can always pour the excess back into the container (just make sure that you have a piece of paper behind your chipboard to catch the extra micro beads).
Now just let it dry. Go ahead and walk away and come back later. :) Although this adhesive does dry really quickly. When the adhesive is dry, pick up your piece and tap off all the excess beads onto your piece of paper. Then pour the extra back into the container.
Your piece should look kinda like this:
You can take a sharp object like your craft knife and run it along the edges to knock off any pieces hanging over the side.
Here's a card that I made with my chipboard pieces:
I adhered both the chipboard and the flower to my card with Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive. The paper is adhered using the Helmar Quick-Fix Adhesive Runner and then my little "Thankful for You" piece is actually adhered with a Helmar Zapdot.
People have asked me where to buy these fabulous Helmar products...you can find them here.
Hope you like this technique! Have a fantastic Wednesday! :)
