I like to use pieces from styrofoam trays I collect throughout the year. It is thicker and more sturdy tohold onto than the purchased sheets. Do you have parents that might donate some as well?

Hi -

Last year I bought a package of sheets (9 x 11) for carving and doing printing from the School Specialty catalog. I have not been very successful in using it. It's fairly thin - 1/8" or so. We attached it to some wood and it still did not cut well. I don't know if it's just not a good product or if I'm not using it right.
Any suggestions?
