been racking my brain to try to figure out how to do it less expensively (i guess cardboard isn't acid free).
call me cheap . . .
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Looks nice but a little pricey for me. I'd rather spend the $ on more fabric! LOL
I agree...way too expensive...must be for those quilters that have nothing better to do but make things look nice and neat.. ( do they quilt?)I agree..I'ld rather spend 60 dollars in fabric....there are so many other alternatives to this solution!
I'm mostly a fan of the dig-thru method :!: That way I get to see what all I have each time I look!
Patty-If you like the way this looks and want to do something cheaper then try chipboard. It is like cardboard, but acid free. People use it all the time for scrapbooking. Here is a link to 50 12X12" sheets for $12.00 plus postage. They have 4 available, so you could get 200 if you need that many and could probably get a break on shipping. I have purchased this for scrapbooking and think it might serve your purpose.
Wow, $1.38 for a piece of plastic that is 5% smaller than a piece of paper is more than a LITTLE pricey in my book!
Be aware that chipboard is coated with clay to make it 'acid-free', which is fine for mounting photos, but I would think twice about storing fabric on it. Also, not all chipboard is coated, and not all coated chipboard is treated on both sides.
A quick thought (fleeting idea!!!)..what about the corrugated plastic that's used to make signs? Should be able to find it somewhere...cut it to the size you want.

you'd think i would have thought of that. my other hobby is scrapbooking. will check into the acid free status. i've gotten large pieces of chipboard at Hobby Lobby and cut it down.
will have to see if i can find it! sounds like a good idea!Originally Posted by mommaB
