14 Days of DIY Love: Have You Played with Chipboard?

I realize I may be late to the game on this one, but I did my first project with chipboard a couple of weeks ago and have been back to Hobby Lobby three times since dreaming up new projects and possibilities with this thick paper product.  If you aren't familiar with chipboard, it's basically a heavy card stock made from recycled paper.  It's typically seen in big sheets of paper, but most recently, Hobby Lobby, Joann's, and other craft stores now carry aisle-fulls of chipboard in all different shapes, sizes, and products.  I've seen many people experiment with the chipboard letters, and just had to try out a banner using these pre-cut chipboard pennants.

Here's what you need for your own pre-cut chipboard banner:

-Chipboard pennant banners.  These can be found in many sizes at your local craft store.  I found mine at Hobby Lobby in the aisle with the burlap and wooden stamps.
-Scrapbook paper - in whatever colors and designs your heart desires.
-Other bling for your pennants - I couldn't resist these chipboard letters that look like they were carved from the pages of a love story.  They were in a similar package to these, and in the same aisle as the chipboard.
-Scissors, glue, hole punch, ribbon

Just use the chipboard as your stencil and cut out matching sized pennants with your scrapbook paper.  Stick on with some glue, embellish with your designs, and re-punch your holes on each side of your pennant.  String some ribbon through and hang on your mantle, your window ledge, or your teepee ;)

More to come on this teepee later this week :).
