Altered Chipboard Buttons

Apr 25, 2011

Here is a tuto­r­i­al on alter­ing chip­board but­tons. These but­tons can be used in so many great ways… on cards, tags, lay­outs, projects and altered art pieces. It is fast and can be cus­tomized with any theme you can come up with.

Sup­plies Used: Maya Road Mini Chip­board But­ton Set, Book Page, Glue Stick, Creamy Brown Ink, Lit­tle Yel­low Bicy­cle Love Let­ters Clear Stamp Set, Archival Jet Black Ink, Acrylic Block, Craft Knife, Sand­ing Block


  1. Apply a glue stick type adhe­sive to the top of the chip­board but­tons and attach to an old book page.
  2. Using a craft knife cut around the chip­board but­ton, then sand the edges to make them flush with the but­ton.
  3. Using a pen­cil or paper piercer punch through the but­ton holes.
  4. Apply Creamy Brown ink to the edges of the but­ton to give it an aged look.
  5. Apply Jet Black ink to a flo­ral stamp and stamp the image onto the but­ton.

It’s that sim­ple. I used the same stamp on all four of my but­tons just ran­dom­ly stamped the image to get dif­fer­ent looks with the dif­fer­ent sizes. You can apply Glossy Accents over the but­tons if you wish or leave them as I did here.

Have fun!
