Default Heavyweight patterned card stock?

I have a friend that is looking for Christmas printed cardstock. She needs it to be 80# so that she can make boxes for the chocolates that she makes and sells.Does anyone have any idea where she might find Christmas themed 80# card stock?


TIA for your help

What about the Under the Tree Specialty Designer Paper from SU!? I am making the curvy keepsake boxes with it. It's strong enough. Don't know the actual weight, but that might be an option. HTH

How much weight do the boxes need to hold & how big of a box? I found some Christmas printed cardstock at Michaels (Recollections brand) and its 65lb. I used it to make small boxes for some earings I made, so I think it would be fine for nugget or party favour boxes.

I believe Amuse has heavy Christmas printed card stock. I think you can also get multiple sheets of the same print too.

She is using the boxes to hold her chocolates she makes. My guess is that each box will be holding a minimum of 6 oz of chocolate. She has to use 12 x 12" CS. 80# weight would be ideal if printed card stock exists in such a weight.

She could adhere the lighter weight printed cardstock/paper to an 80# cardstock plain base that is a color that coordinates with the colors in the printed cardstock.

I'm not sure of the weight bit I purchased lovely printed card stock (probably retired) by CTMH (Close to My Heart) at a crop. I remember wanting it because it was heavy ... and gorgeous.

If the patterns need to be the same I think the suggestion by QueenofInkland is the best option. It also expands her choices as to where to purchase.

Happy Crafting!

What about stamping a repeated pattern onto solid cardstock?

Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I've passed the info on to her. She is doing mass production so taking the time to add dsp to the solid color boxes probably isn't too feasible. Stamping them might be slightly more feasible. At any rate, she now has the info and can figure out what she wants to do. This is her busy season and she nets a couple grand during the holidays. Her real job is civil engineering. She makes high quality chocolates and sells them for fun.

I know this doesn't help much for this year, but depending on how much she want's to invest in her hobby, she could buy a large format printer and print her own 12x12 cardstock. I have one and its nice to be able to print my own paper when I am unable to find what I need. Scrapgirls.com has really nice digital designs.

If this is in reference to my suggestion, I wasn't clear LOL

I was suggesting she glue 12 x 12 decorative paper onto a 12 x 12 80# piece of cardstock and then she'd have 12 x 12 80# decorative paper of sorts.

If she has the $$ tho, I like the suggestion to get a large format printer !!

The SU Christmas catalog has a gorgeous 12 X 12 pack that I believe would be perfect for boxes. I think it is kraft colored with various printings in white. Very thick. If a SU demonstrator is around they could probably tell you more about it. Or even another just as thick.
There are also great new punch boards to make various boxes and bags that might make her job easier. I saw 4 or 5 styles at Hobby Lobby yesterday and most were under $20. I have the candy box. It makes the Christmas cracker type containers with ribbon on each end. Very cute.

She may be better off buying preprinted premade food safe boxes. There are a lot of companies that make these kinds of products and they can be pretty cost effective. She could probably also save a penny or two if she bought plain kraft coloured ones and used decorative paper/ribbon as a sash/belly band. Here's a couple places I googled quickly for some ideas:

TBK Pink Food Safe Cake Boxes

I love those clear truffle boxes and they are not very expensive. A ribbon and beautiful tag to decorate would be perfect, and people can then see the homemade chocolates.

But, then, you would "have to" eat all the Ferraro Rocher!
I have some heavy 12 x 12 cardstock from DCWV or Recollections in a pad with Christmas patterns, and glitter, and shiny stuff, from several years ago. They may have new heavy patterns by now.

Thanks for all the suggestions. Susan is a total OCD do it yourselfer. She loves creating things. She has a Silhouette that she is using to make the boxes. I'm throwing your suggestions her way. She'll do whatever she decides to do


thanks for all your ideas!

Just to throw another thought into the mix: Don't know if it would matter or not, but I see lots of comments on the internet about whether paper and card stock is "food safe."
