Love Large Chipboard Embellishment Layout
February 12, 2021
Hello and happy Friday! It's Jennifer here on the blog to share a project I did for Valentines Day since its this weekend. Whether you celebrate or not, its still fun to document the people in your life that mean the most to you! I created a layout using the Love Large Chipboard Embellishment and am going to show you my technique!
I cut the letters away from the chipboard frame they are packaged in ensuring to snip any excess tabs. Using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive, I adhered patterned paper to the front of each letter.
Using scissors, I trimmed excess paper followed by using an x-acto knife and a sanding tool to smooth edges. Because I wanted more of a distressed look, I did not overly concern myself with making sure each edge was perfect. I would also usually "clean up" edges by adding paint to the sides but decided to forego this step.
I adhered my letters again using the Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive arranging them as shown. You can see I tried to use contrasting patterns for each letter.
For accent, I added die cut floweres and hearts around my photo using pop dots to give dimension.
Also, small stickers or enamel dots are wonderful additions to your project.
