Cork is very light and easy to use. It is an ideal medium to make squares.

Cork can be sold in rolls, panels or sheets, however if you are feeling creative you can recycle it from wine bottles or notepad boards. Be wary with old wine bottle corks though as they may smell or have an unusual color that may change over time if you don't let them dry out properly.

I would recommend using cork that is around 1cm or 10mm thick (about 2/5ths of an inch). This is an easy size to work with and will not be too thick to cut through or manipulate.
