Large Bone Book Closure~


Using a combination of the 1" round chipboard and the 2" square chipboard shapes, I laid out a design on a Ikea mirror, selected a Graphics 45 paper from the Fashionista collection, adhered the paper to the chipboard using Claudine Hellmuth Matte Medium, sanded the perimeter, added a bit of extra color to the edges using Tim Holtz Pumice Stone Distress Ink Pad and then adhered the shapes to the mirror using the matte medium. 
I then added some red grosgrain ribbon to hang it with.


7 Gypsies Vintage Frames Cover, Arc~ This comes in 2 pieces, the back is solid and the front has an archway cut out so that you can insert a picture, photo, collage, needlework, etc.  It looks like a vintage picture frame that may have been around in the 20' or 30's.  It has been embellished to give it an aged, vintage look and has an emblem on the bottom that a photographer of that era may have used.  It measures 5" wide and approx 7 1/2" high.  The picture does not represent the correct color- it does not have a blue tone but more of a grayish with gold accents over arch & around the perimeter.


7 Gypsies Vintage Frames Cover, Small Over~ This comes in 2 pieces, the back is solid and the front has an oval opening cut out so that you can insert a picture, photo, collage, needlework, etc.  It looks like a vintage picture frame that may have been around in the 20's or 30's. It has an emblem on the bottom that a photographer of that era may have used.  It measures 3 1/2" wide and approx 5 1/2" high.  The color is like a kraft paper color and has an ornate design surrounding the oval opening.


Zutter Chipboard Covers, 4.1" x 4.1"~ This size has 2 pieces of chipboard in it. 


7 Gypsies Book Covers-Gypsy Style~ It measures 5.5"x7" in size and the front and back cover are mirror images of each other.  Add a unique embellishment to the center you created with an Articus Studio brass charm or other cool embellishment or collage.  Comes with 2 boards in a package.


Chipboard 1" square~I got the idea for this one evening while watching QVC jewelry- they showed a piece I liked and thought I could replicate it somewhat with the chipboard and a charm.  I painted the chipboard black.  I wanted a little bit of design in the background so I embossed a stamp with gears on it in black embossing powder, added the brass charm and 3 small Swarovski flat back crystals in the center and a scew post at the top.  If I was going to wear this as a necklace, I would further shore up the screw post with some glue or glaze. 
You can do a lot with the chipboard pieces to create unique one-of-a-kind embellishments for your cards, books, scrapbooks, etc.
the 1" size is no longer available but here for sample.


Although this is not a chipboard square (black mat board) it does represent the cute little somethin'-somethin' you can make with the squares.  This was a little clippy handed out by B-Line Rubber Stamps at CHA 2008.  I loved it- I like black and white alot!  When I first started stamping, I bough all the cutesy stamps- teddy bears, flowers, etc and then I found myself being drawn to more graphic artsy kind of stamps.  I was intriqued by that process to see how my true taste and style evolved.


This was a pre-bought spiral bound book and I decorated it using the Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint-black soot as the background and I put 3 little chipboard squares together and stamped a word on them (Vision from Stampers Anonymous) and then separated them and mounted them on back door screen.  I also painted 3 other squares and used them vertically stamping single words on them.  It also had a Tim Holtz Trinket Pin above the little angel stamp and a "One Way" traffic road sign sticker.  The lion stamp was done at a class I took somewhere.  I liked the stamp and I had some paper towels that had ink all over it so I stamped it on the paper towel and it ended up on this project. 


Using a bracket shaped bookboard,  I used Graphics 45 paper on the cover and pages of the book.  I made the pages square though, they do not mimic the shape of the brackets (just too fussy for me to do that).  All you need to do is just make them the size of the board at its narrowest.  I did use a corner rounder to round the pages though to mimic the rounded tops and bottoms of the chipboard. 
Although I no longer carry this shape, I thought you  still might like to see a sample you can adapt to any shape.

Inchie Sample by Gloria Randall


This piece uses 35 1x1" chipboard "inchie" squares.  For the silver ones, I coated with embossing ink and then embossed with several coats of platinum embossing powder and stamped an image in it.  The other tiles have a combination of brass charms, & Tim Holtz washer token embellishments.  It is adhered to a 5"x7" canvas using Claudine Hellmuth Matte Medium as the adhesive.


Extend your book board supply by using the book board for the back of the book and using nice weight cover stock for the front.
