Hello,
I'm trying to make the gift box on pg 80 of Wild Card and it seems I need a stiffer/stronger paper to make them sturdy..

I frequently read Crafters' instructions that specify a certain weight cardstock; how do you know what weight your paper is that you have/are buying?

Thank you

I don't know if I can help you with this question. Maybe you can do a search on line of the paper manufactures. You might also want to try and use Oak tag . I just cut out some paper doll people out of oak tag because I couldn't find any 12 X 24 paper.I was able to cut it with a regular blade and only one cut not multi cuts.

I have to confess when I first read your post I was wondering why would she want to make a box for a paperweight??Confused Unsure then I reread what you wrote.It's been a long dayLaugh
