Default A2 boxes

One of the older Split Coast tutorials involves making a box for A2 cards. I've made dozens of these boxes, but am wondering if there's a better paper to use. I like something called Gmund bier paper, which is a 92-lb. cardstock made from recycled beer labels. Have used standard cardstock for the box lids, but they don't hold up well. Watercolor paper? Other suggestions? Thanks.

If you have a Sam's Club membership, I highly recommend this cardstock. It is 110 lb. and you get 250 sheets for only $7.23. I use it for making boxes, stamping images, and for my card bases.

Another suggestion... if you have a paper distributor in your area, most often they have off-cuts they will sell cheap. I bought a whole ream of 12"x18" 200lb cardstock for under $10. Its fabulous for making boxes.
