Chipboard goes on a StrongGrip Mat and Paper or Cardstock on a LightGrip mat. Cut Settings: for 1.5mm Chipboard use the "Damask Chipboard" setting. Use the appropriate setting for your thickness/type of decorative paper. Always keep an eye on your Maker as it cuts to ensure no damage is done to your machine.
Using a sharp craft knife and straight edge, score the top piece of chipboard according to the dashed lines on the pattern, or the drawn or scored lines made by the Cricut.
Flatten your top chipboard piece back out and lay on the backside of your printed paper.
Working one section at a time, apply adhesive and allow it a moment to become tacky.
Fold the piece into its 3d form and place the glued section to the patterned paper. Before the glue sets, be sure that the piece has been well placed and the full front will be covered by the paper.
Fold the scored sides of the piece you just glued down and apply pressure along it. Fold until the chipboard meets itself.
Continue gluing the decorative paper to each section, folding and creasing as you go, making sure the piece retains its 3d shape.
Wrap the extra paper over the edge onto the back of the chipboard. Glue down and/or use tape to secure in place.
Apply a line of hot glue to one side of the pentagon flat piece. Place the 3d top piece in place and hold until the glue fully cools and sets.
Repeat for the 3 other connected sides. Once fully attached, use hot glue like caulk around the edge to make sure the 2 pieces are completely glued together.
