Default Chipboard

I was looking in a magazine and saw a really adorable notebook cover made out of different sizes of chipboard. What is chipboard and where do you think I could buy it? (I did look at Michael's, but I didn't see anything but chipboard letters -- I could have been in the wrong section though).

Do you think heavy cardboard is a decent substitute?

Stampin' Up! sells a couple of great chipboard packages -- letters, shapes and some books.

Heavy cardboard would be a decent substitute, but I honestly believe it would be hard to cut. I used the negatives of the SU! shapes to make more shapes and cut them from cereal boxes. Haven't gotten to the alphas yet, but I will do the same with those. HTH

Oh, I should've said that I cover my cereal box cutouts with designer paper.

Chipboard comes in all sorts of sizes and weights. I've seen a variety of sizes available in our local privately owned office supply store (which supplies the university students with project materials). It has long been a favorite of the architectural students.

I've seen it in the scrapbooking store, in notebook sizes, and the prepunched tags, etc. are more expensive.

Stampboard is making an number of thicker smaller items now, and I think they were kinda pricey.

And there is the ubiquitous chipboard - the back of paper pads is nice chipboard, so keep your eyes open for the free stuff.

I have also asked for matboard scraps at the local framing center - it has color, it is acid free and is great stuff to work with.
