What is the best paper for crafts?
You’re going to want a sturdy paper when you’re crafting so that it holds the shape and can handle the weight of the glue, if you’re using any.
This is why a lot of people will use construction paper, or thicker printer paper, for all their crafting needs. Scrapbook paper is also another great paper to use for crafts and kids love it because it has fun designs and coloring to it as well. Kraft paper is also another option because it’s hard to tear, too.
