I experienced another who doesn't love "FREE" moment...
Check out this idea!
If you're looking for something a little stronger than scrapbook paper or cardstock but don't quite want heavy chipboard to make mini-albums or homemade embellishments, look no further then your pantry.
Yes, you read it right... I said your pantry.
Look to cereal boxes, mac & cheese boxes, cracker boxes and any other boxes that your groceries come packaged in.
You can save yourself a pretty penny.
Just use your personal stash of scrapbook paper, paints or inks to give the cardboard a little facelift. You can customize it anyway you would like. They do provide a slightly stronger composition then cardstock and are actually easy to work with. They cut well with scissors. I even tried using one of my punches on a piece & it actually worked like a charm. They take to sand paper well and if you use a large needle you can even stitch it.
