Ship In A Box

This was an idea I'd had for a while, I just needed an excuse to do it. (My mothers birthday present). I'd like to go on and make some more now, the most difficult part was cutting out the shapes which are printouts, glued on to mounting board, and then mat varnished. The mounting board is incredibly difficult to cut round even with a very sharp scalpel blade. I'm thinking I could use some sort of foam based product, that would be easier under the knife. Any suggestions greatly received.
