Shopping Our Stash #248 - Chip Off The Old Block - Use Chipboard

Hello, Crafty Peeples!
If it's Tuesday, then it must be Stash Reduction Day!   This week we want to help you rid yourself of all those annoying little pieces of chipboard languishing in your stash box, drawer, or on the floor. Chipboard is so versatile you can use it to create embellishments, boxes, cards and a host of other creative little doodads.  We look forward to seeing your creations.

Thanks for playing along with us this week!
Hugz,
Chana
