Feel free to cannibalize cereal boxes, cardboard backings from packaged designer paper etc.. Then make sure you cover the back and front with cardstock or stiffer paper such as 140lb cold press watercolour paper . You can do your magic on the front as it accepts inks and water colours markers etc well. I would invest in a one inch punch. You likely cannot use the punch for cardboard but cardstock as well as watercolour paper is fine.
You can use newspaper as a background or pages from an old book or magazine etc. And you'll need a good pair of fine tip scissors to cut out smaller images.
