I won a chipboard story book and started covering it lastnight and one page looks like a bomb went off-basically i sucked at cutting on this page....so what do you do with the edges-do you sand them or ink them-what do you do with yours???? A couple of pages i sanded and i may ink them anyway i am just afraid i royally screwed this one up and may just rip the paper off it...i dunno
I think inking might help. With a bit of sanding here and there to kind of distress it a bit?
I am not that 'great' at chipboard yet. I think there is a learning curve, but what is great about chipboard is that the sometimes, the more abuse it gets the better it looks.
I've done a couple of chipboard albums. What I do about the edges is I cut my paper short of the edges and then ink around the paper. This is the cover of one of my mini books. Check out my gallery for more images of this book and another chipboard book I've made. Hope this helps!
I guess i should also tell you its the word story books. Mine is family and i have the ILY done. Thats it..i got all nervous and stopped. Thanks for the ideas ladies-i searched in the gallery also so that helped
I have an album like that and one thing that helped sanding the edges was a tool from Basic Grey. It has lots of different files, some really small & skinny, to help with around the letters. I just put on a full sheet of paper and then used a craft knife to cut away some of the bigger areas I didn't need, then started with the files.
