WHAT KIND OF PAPER SHOULD I USE TO MAKE ORNAMENTS?
To make this paper Christmas ornament craft, I recommend that you use white card stock.
What is card stock? It is a medium-weight paper that’s heavier than printer paper but is thinner than cardboard. Card stock is available in many different colors.
Many people use card stock for their crafts. It is perfect for making greeting cards, scrapbooks, handmade boxes, and more. Card stock is made up of a blend of hardwood and softwood fibers & fillers. This is what makes it sturdier.
You can use card stock for this DIY craft or you can also use regular copy paper. However, when using regular copy paper, it will not hold up as well as when using card stock.
