What kind of paper is used for paper flowers?
Also question is, what paper is best for making paper flowers?
Secondly, what kind of cardstock is used for paper flowers? In general, I always use 65 pound weighted (176gram) cardstock, but I never go above 80 pound cardstock and never below 50 pound. Most craft stores are going to offer cardstock like this.
Regarding this, what is the best paper weight for paper flowers?
I almost always use either 50 or 65 pound weight cardstock. At times I have gone up to 80 pound but never any higher than that because it becomes too difficult to get a smooth curl to your petals at a certain thickness.
What is hard paper called?
Card stock, also called cover stock or pasteboard, is a paper stock that is thicker and more durable than normal writing or printing paper, but thinner and more flexible than other forms of paperboard.
