Cereal Box Chipboard

Hi crafty peeps, it's Cyndy again with another Quick Tip Tuesday

Are you ever in need of chipboard, but don't have any? 
Just use a cereal box!  It's fast, cheap, and easy!
I try to cut the cereal boxes when I have a new blade and a sticky mat. However, depending on the wear of your blade, you can also use the multicut feature. 

Here's a quick look at a project I had done using a cereal box as chipboard. 

 Here's a look at the tie I cut out. 
 Here's the back. 
I used the cereal box as chipboard on a regular cut to give it dimension, but you can also use it for mini albums. 
I created this mini "chipboard" album about a year ago and it has minor wear, but the cereal box "chipboard" is still holding strong!

I hope you found this tip helpful and I will see you next Tuesday!

  1. thanks for the idea!!!


  2. I have a pile of cereal boxes and such in my art room waiting to be used! They are such the perfect thickness and can be easily layered for a thicker project! Great tip!!!

  3. That is a great idea! My kids go through cereal so fast it is a great way to reuse the boxes.

  4. Have to give this a try. I was cutting glitter cardstock yesterday and 1 piece was thicker than the other so I used high pressure & blade at 5.
