    Chipboard is similar to flat cardboard. It is a little thicker than a cereal box cardboard. Many papercrafters use it as a base for projects or to give dimension to embellishments. You can cut it into shapes or letters. You can get chipboard in sheets or already cut into shapes.
    You can do all sorts of things to it. You can paint it, stamp on it, distress it, cover it with cardstock or designer paper. You can use it as a sturdy base and/or sides for a box. Use it to make ornaments or wall hangings. Use it for titles or to make words stand out on scrapbook pages or cards.

    Hope that helped.
