Default Chipboard alternative

Next time you go out to wine or to dine, pickup one or two of those coasters that he waitstaff sets your drink(s) on.

These work best with the older school dies that are housed in the plastic casing. The ones I'm familiar were made by Sizzix.

It's an inexpensive alternative to chipboard.

I use the cardboard from the firmer cereal and cracker boxes. Sometimes the prints on them can even work for embellishments.

I use those & the frozen food boxes(FFB). I like that the FFBs usually have a white inside, so usually use those for ATC backs.

Don't forget the back piece of chipboard from a notepad.

I use the ones from legal pads when I have photos to mail. Helps them to arrive safely.

Too bad Hotels got smart and started leaving only a few sheets of paper in rooms instead of a whole note pad. They were often very close to A2 size, so perfect when you needed that size chipboard.

I love those little pads too and bring them home when I get my hands on them. While I am using up the paper they make nice reminders of my travels.
