View Full Version : Special Paper Needed For Greeting Cards?

I've just got started with paper crafts. I've made a few little projects from tutorials from YouTube and it's been a blast! No one ever told me how addicting it is to sit down and craft. Sad that I've found out so late. :(

My current project is building this Crayon Popup Card (https://paperchaser.to/blogs/tutorials/tutorial-template-crayon-box-in-a-card) with a template. I'm not the best at drawing or coming up with something creative. A lifetime in accounting will do that to you.

They never stated what kind of paper I should use? I'm sure I can use regular old printing paper but I'm worried that it'll be all flimsy and easily damaged before I give it to my grandchild.

What do you guys think they used? :(

Drawing paper tends to be thicker than standard printing paper and more stiff. There is also the option of using thin construction board paper for this as well. I am not sure if there is a name for it or not but it isn't as thick as the regular kind but should work nicely for this.
