Also known as cardboard or paperboard, Chipboard is thick board made from recycled paper fibers. The material is produced in a variety of grades from very thin to very thick to create different products. Chipboard, made by pressing layers of recycled fiber together to form a larger piece of material, is also affordable and an eco-friendly alternative to other manufactured materials. Here are four of the best ways to use chipboard.
