How to Make Custom “Chipboard” Letters

Custom Chipboard Letters

Chipboard letters are awesome, but many times I’m unable to find a style and font that fits the project that I’m working on, so I decided to make my own! This is an easy project, and you can make whatever font, letter, shape, or size that you need using your die cutter (I used my Silhouette) and any software that allows you to make your own custom cuttable files. I used Silhouette Studio, but Sure Cuts a Lot or Make the Cut would work well, too.

And I forgot to mention it in the video (d’oh!), but for fonts that have small, detailed areas, you can use a ballpoint or marker tipped glue pen to make those areas sticky.

Supplies Used

Silhouette SD + Silhouette Studio Software
Tombow Mono Adhesive Roller (Diamond Dots)
Kraft Cardstock (The Paper Company)
Martha Stewart Crafts Ballpoint Tip Glue Pen (optional)
Fonts : Chunkfive (free) and Eloquent Regular
