We all love the look of chipboard on our pages. It adds a wonderful dimension to layouts. Obviously, you can paint it, ink it, mist it, but what about covering it with paper?
Here's how...first the supplies you need: Trace the letter onto the paper by adhering it upside down:
Trim the excess paper away with an exacto--makes it easier to get into the small spaces. Sand the edges to give your newly covered peice a nice professional use.

Unsanded, the piece will have sharp and torn looking edges.

Sanded, it looks much more professional. Using cardstock with a white core gives and even better look.
