Blogger's Challenge!


This week's Blogger's Challenge is to use chipboard. I have a little confession...I don't own any!!! I did however, save the back of a notebook that was all used up, so I decided to run it through my Cuttlebug with these sweet flower blossom dies and make some chipboard flowers. I also used some Barely Banana, Certainly Celery, and Bashful Blue to layer onto the chipboard flowers.

This poor lunchbox tin has been sitting in my stamping area for over a year just begging to be altered!! I used some of my favorite retired Stampin' Up Designer Paper (Sarah) and Modge Podge to adhere it to the tin. I also used Modge Podge on the outside of the paper to protect it. Then I glued on my chipboard flowers and made some stems with some polka dotted paper.

One more Blogger's Challenge under my belt! Be sure to check out what the other fabulous ladies came up with. There is a link to their blogs in my right sidebar. Just click on the Blogger's Challenge logo.

It's a beautiful day here in New England...I wish you the same! So glad that you could stop by...Toodles! :D

Great project...and the backs of notepads qualify for chipboard...I use them all the time, sometimes even layering more than one layer to make them thicker. Fabulous job with your tin!
