Where is the best online or local place to buy the 1/2" foam core board Sharon Zambito uses? It's $5 a sheet at my local Hobby Lobby......WAY too expensive for me......
Anyone have a good go-to place for this?
That is about the same price at Michaels - I use the 40% off coupon everytime I don't need something else to stock up on it. OR wait till they have the sale on the 1/4" (2 for $3.) and buy a bunch of those to glue together.
I can get several boards out of one 20x30 piece so if you look at it that way it isn't too bad. Just add it in to the costs of the cake - I don't know of any other board you can use that is cheaper.
I don't know if you have a Pearl Paint, discount art supplier, near you. They have 1/2" foamcore for $3.66. They also have an online store you can order from (don't know about the shipping though).
Also, at Pearl Paint you can get the larger size board 32x40 for $6.28.
Thanks gals. I guess I'll just have to slowly stock up w/ those coupons. I really thought I'd be able to find them cheap online somewhere.....but unless you pay a few hundred and get them in bulk, they're really not any cheaper. I'm not that popular in town yet....so no need to stock up....can't "count the eggs b/f they hatch!"
Hobby Lobby has them on sale for 50% off every few weeks. Check the ads closely every week as they're not always listed in the same place. Sometimes they're under 'art', sometimes under 'framing' and sometimes they're listed in small print along the bottom of the ad.
Also check to see when your Hobby Lobby gets its weekly shipment. Mine is on Thursday, so I don't even bother trying to stock up before then. However, if you happen to shop at the same Hobby Lobby as me, the weekly shipment comes in on Friday. hahahahahaha
Thank you SOOOO much DianeLM!!!! I really appreciate it!
I have a question....does Sharon use them to hold the weight of large tiers, like 14"? I usually just double my cardboards and cover that in contact paper. But that's not cheap either.
You can try artsupply.com and click foamboard, then sturdy board. they are not that bad in price, i think.
