Creating a three-dimensional scene is yet another use for raw chipboard. Simple shapes like this petite row of houses can make a dramatic display.
ONE • Select an "off the page" chipboard product like this cluster of houses. TWO • Use a light-weight paper like tissue paper, deli paper, or vellum. Apply matte medium (or clear liquid glue) on the chipboard and lay them onto the paper. Let dry before cutting the pieces and assembling. THREE • I used craft glue to hold the chipboard together. Rubber-bands held the parts tight until the glue dried. FOUR • Paint the accessory parts a contrasting colour (I used white) and then attach with craft glue. (Painting small pieces is easier while they are still in the bigger chipboard sheet.) Once they were on the houses I filled the "panes" of the windows with glue and sprinkled with glass glitter.
