I need very heavy weight chipboard to cut down to make a square 8 x 8 chipboard book. I will cut the board with a heavy duty office guilitine cutter, so I am not concerned about whether it can go through a Cricut. I want it to be the same thickness as the shaped chipboard books you can get for a dollar at Michaels.
Where can I buy this?

J's and M's both carry packs of 12 X 12 chipboard sheets like that. At my M's they are with the paper packs and at my J's they are with the embellishment, but you have to look around for them. J's also has a bunch online.

I got 12x12 pieces free at my local M's. Some of their 12x12 single papers come packaged with a piece of chipboard and when they open the package to put it on the paper rack they leave the chipboard in the rack. So I asked the cashier if I could buy it. She said to just take it because they normally just throw it away.

I bought large alphas on clearance and use those for mini albums by leaving the letters in and gluing paper over them. I don't like cutting thick chipboard, only the stuff I can easily cut witn my Tonic scissors or my Cricut.

|Posted: 7/26/2010 10:42:09 AM|Our LSS has had them, but most of the time I either buy them off of ebay or buy "refill" chipboard pages at LSS & use them for the covers. Oh, Zutter makes album covers that come in different sizes that aren't too expensive.
Also, 2peas has these to check out!

Thanks for all the ideas! Alot of what was suggested just wasn't thick enough for me. So, I went to a real art supply store and bought a GIANT sheet of chipboard mounting board. It is really thick, but really big - 40" x 32". I'm not sure yet how I'm going to cut it down to 8x8 squares - maybe a box cutter and T-square in the driveway? It was less than $5.00.
