      Do you use pieces of cardboard boxes as a replacement for pop dots?

        I usually use pop dots. I’ve seen Paulien and Rae use the box pieces and I liked the idea. I tried it on a recent layout and I really like the effect!

          I use cardboard for the most part. It give the paper or photo more stability.

          take time to smell the roses

            I always use cardboard, it’s free so no more buying pop dots or foam tape. Plus you can cut it to any size you like, putting 20 pop dots on the back of a photo is a pain.

              I love cardboard! I do use pop dots or foam tape for intricate chipboard or dies though.

                I use cardboard for the bigger square or rectangle things, but pop dots for the smaller things. I have various sizes and shapes of pop dots. I also cut up the left over stuff the pop dots are in and use that. No waste!

                  Me too, Cheryl- the negative of the pop dots are awesome, especially for the teeny tiny things. No waste.

                    Cardboard whenever possible! Like Kathi said, more support. I use pop dots for small things and I use the negative of the pop dots, too. Krissy keeps us well supplied with free cardboard!

                      I use cardboard foam squares and the roll of foam insulation.

                        Depends. If I want a very solid backing of a larger space, I love to use packaging.

                        To give a bit of dimension to smaller items, I use foam tape. Maggi introduced me to foam packaging tape from Uline about a year and a half ago. It’s actually a huge roll; I have one black and one white and I don’t think I’ll ever run out!

                        A clean house is the sign of a lazy scrapper.

                          I use the same roll of foam tape as Peggy. I’m sure once I run out, I’ll be using cardboard.

                            I use pop dots but love the idea of the cardboard and foam tape cant wait to try this.

                              I actually do not like foam tape. It’s most likely user error, but I find that my layers and pics buckle when I use it. But, I’m also funny about tape runners too- hate them. I use ZipDry and scor-tape for layers and pics.

                                  I just finished a layout and ended up gluing together some old grunge board pieces to get the lift I wanted. I did this one other time, but other than that have always used pop dots. Guess I shouldn’t be so quick to recycle my card board.
