Thursday Product Review: Cardstock

Hello fellow crafters!

Luisa here with a product review for you: cardstock and a box made using heavy duty cardstock (yes, the box I had promised you before). Yes, we use it in almost all of our projects in all sorts of ways, and here is my personal review on several brands out there. Please join our discussion by leaving comments here or at the video post and please let me know if you have a type of cardstock not listed here that you would like to recommend. I AM ALWAYS looking for different cardstock brands.

TIP: Experiment with "scratch" cardstock first, to understand the mechanics of the box and then use your intended paper for it!



Disclaimer: this is my personal opinion on these brands, I have not been paid or given any free product and this is solely my opinion.

First, here is a quick chart for you:
