Make your own Corrugated Cardboard

Click for detail

Dust off those crimpers everyone!  I am so happy to show you how you can create your very own corrugate. Yes, most of you may call it cardboard, I understand.


The possibilities are endless, great for all paper artists.  In these samples I have used a lot of scrapbook paper and spray inks, but you can use any paper and any medium.  I painted the blue sample with some acrylic paint.


Here is the technique:





If you have a youtube account, I would love it if you uploaded a video response to link to my vid.  If not, please link your picture in the comments, I would love to see what you create!

Much LOVE xo

  1. I recently used some "corrugate" on a journal page but since I'm too unorganized to possibly find my crimper I had to rip layers off a piece of a box. I'll post a link.
    Thanks for all the inspiration Paula!

  6. I have a crimper, too, somewhere...I'd have to dig it out. Once, years ago, I left the crimper out on my desk and came back to find my young sons had crimped EVERY single paper on my desk...including the stack of bills. lol!

  10. I don't have a crimper, but I've been saving those Starbuck's hot drink sleeves to use for the same purpose, and they also make great textural stamps for ink or paint.

    Some of us were in Seattle many years ago and make a journal with "corrugated" cardboard. We used printed tissue papers, gluing and pushing them between the "corrugated" valleys. I remember we had to get a cab and go somewhere to get something before we could finish it and of course it was at night. I am sure we were there for a convention and/or classes but can't remember exactly what. Try the tissue paper, it's fun/
