Creative with Chipboard

Over at Kaboodle Doodles Challenge Blog, challenge 84 this week is to make a papercraft project using chipboard.

My project to enter into the challenge is a cute little autograph book for my niece. The covers are made from chipboard and the front is embellished with a chipboard flower and button, which I painted with paint daubers. The covers are decorated with ice-cream themed paper and the inside pages are decorated with chipboard shapes with a foodie theme (mostly freebies from magazine cover gifts). It is held together using the Bind it All and the wires are decorated with ribbon snips. The embossed metal frame on the front is from Making Memories.

My niece is in her final year at primary school, so I thought it would be nice to give her this so that she can record memories of her school and for her friends to write little messages and draw doodles in. I hope she likes it!
