Best Paper For Paper Flowers
Reach for a construction paper or even craft paper, for making paper flowers. These are great because you want to have a stiff enough paper that folds and holds its shape.
If you use too thin of paper you will find it won’t hold the shape properly. So reach for a thicker paper that when you create a crease you will find it holds the shape.
