If you came from Stephanie Gradzki blog you are at the right place. if you just happed to visit today and want start from the beginning go to Angela Butler's blog. This blog hop is all about techniques 24 of us are sharing our favorite technique and the technique I picked is using the paper crimper. This was one of the first tools I bought when I started this hobby. I have to tell you that I had to dust it off. LOL. I have not used this tool in a very long time. It had been calling me the last few weeks and then I came across this technique on Journal Artist A Art
So I had to try it. Making your own Corrugated Cardboard
This is what you need a paper crimper, chipboard, cardstock, patterned paper, glimmer mist/water, wet glue
A thinner cardstock worked better for me when I put it through the crimmper. It seemed to keep it's shape better that a thicker cardstock.
You need to add moister to the cardstock before you put it through the crimper so that it keeps it's shape. I used glimmer mist to add color but you can use water.
after the cardstock goes through the crimper let it dry a bit. I glued this piece to the chipboard with some wet adhesive. I let it dry.
Now you can add some ink
I love the way this came out. Imagine you can now you this to cut it out with any dies you may have. It works great for cover for mini albums. I used it for a little sign
I used one of Tim Holtz dies alterations mover and shapers- mini tickets set
I also used a Donna Downey Stamp for the saying.
