Well since my daughter thinks it is and she has an ever growing collection I decided to make her a little jewelry box this month to match her room. Her room is blue, pink and white with butterflies everywhere – so the homespun line was the perfect touch for this little jewelry box. However, before I show you my completed jewelry box I am going to show you a technique that you can do using your ChipArt tool, some embossing powder, versa mark ink pad and of course you heating gun.
I love monograms so I decided to make one using the ChipArt tool this month. If you haven’t already thought of this – here’s yet another great thing you can do with this tool!
1. Versa Mark Ink Pad
2. ChipArt tool
3. Embossing Powder
4. Heating Gun
5. Chipboard (I attached mine to a scrap piece of paper so it would be easy to hold and I would not get burned.)
Step 1: Cover chipboard with versa mark ink.
Step 2: Cover chipboard in Embossing powder and heat until it melts (will look like metal)
Step 3: While it’s still hot quickly add another layer of embossing powder and heat – repeat this process 3 more times
Step 4: Now take the chipart tool and stamp it into the versa mark ink – set aside and cover the chipboard 1 last time in embossing powder and heat.
Step 5: While the embossing powder is still hot take the chipArt tool and place it into the center of the chipboard and press down lightly and wait until it cools to remove it and you will have a nicely monogrammed chipboard piece.
And here's my finished jewelry box with my little "A" monogram:
I hope this gets your head spinning about all the possibilities of this tool!
Have a super crafty day everyone!
