Smile chip board

Hello! I have been hearing alot about chip board and would like to work with it. What exactly is it and where can you get it? A craft store or like a Home Depot type of place?

Thanks!
Jodi

I am sure there are some local craft stores that carry it.
You can paint these or ink them up with your craft ink or my favorite is to use my craft knife and cut around it and use my designer paper to cut it out and glue it to the letter and add to either my scrapbook page or journal. They look fabulous on so many things! It really is nice to give an extra dimension to your work. I love them! I like to tie some ribbon to them too to give them an extra finishing touch.

You can get your chipboard literally at ANY craft store worth their weight in salt! You can get them plain so you can alter them or you can get pieces that are already accented.

Make sure, before you buy, you get an idea of what you would like to use them for. There are a whole range of prices out there but you'll get what you pay for in quality. Some thinner and less expensive styles are great for some uses, but if you're looking to alter tins, clip boards, etc. you want the good sturdy kind!

Chipboard is WONDERFUL and a ton of fun! Try some-you'll be in L-O-V-E!

Thank you so much for the help. Is it like heavy paper like a compressed paper?

It's like the cardboard that comes in a tee shirt, only thicker. The stuff we have with SU! is about three or four times thicker than that, but you can get it in other thicknesses.

Chipboard is usually compared to the back of legal pads. I have never played with it, but I see many projects in my future. I am thinking of making a bunch of little "board" books for my Sunday school class. I want to make a book with everyone's picture for all of them. I think a bunch of 2 year olds would like seeing their friends all through the week.

Smile Re: chipboard

I got my chipboard at Hobby Lobby. I found it in the picture framing department. It was by the mat board in some slotted sections, and was labeled chipboard. It was $5.99 for a huge piece. Should last me forever.
