I ran across a couple of threads here about the storage boards that everyone was raving about.

I had to have some.....problem.

I'm on a tight income....so what to do?

After a lot of searching, I found someone that would sell me a 4'x8' sheet of 4mm corrugated plastic for a steal.

I came home with it today and started doing some cutting. I only did 1/4 of the sheet and got 10 sheets out of it. I would have gotten 11 but I goofed on one.

Here are the 10 with fabric on them already.

I figure I can get 48 8"x11.75" fabric boards.

I ask my LQS for empty cardboard boards that the fabric is on when it is on the shelves. After the fabric is sold out, I help them recycle instead of throwing them out.

You can get the corrugated plastic from a place that makes signs.

Just to save some more $, you can put multiple fabrics on one card. Lay them on top of one another so the outside ends are flush. Fold them onto the card, and when you get near the end, move all but the bottom fabric to the side. Fold the bottom fabric at 45 degrees until the end is even with the edge nearest you. Fold the next one at 45 degrees, but don't bring the end all the way to the edge of the fabric. Fold the next a little further until you get to the top. When you wrap the ends around the card, you'll be able to see all the fabrics on that card. We do this when the fabrics belong together for a project. You can even tuck the instructions into the fold to keep the whole project together.
