Default For those who make their own envelopes, I need paper recommendations, please.

I make my own envelopes, with a wonderful envelope punch I bought from Stampin' Up! a few years ago. Love it. Works really well!

While I have quite a few 12x12 paper packs, these all have some kind of design or floral prints, which are great, for sending out regular cards. However, I am making some sympathy cards and really need some plain white 12x12, as well as vanilla 12x12 paper packs.

Can anyone recommend some good paper (white and/or vanilla)?

Thank you so much.

On Amazon, I found Vanilla 12x12, 80lb. cardstock for $16.45. I also found white 12x12, 80lb. cardstock for $15.04. Both of these paper packs contain 60 sheets each. I just don't know if 80lb. paper is a good enough weight and also, not sure if the prices on these are reasonable.

I buy 12 x 12 inch white 65 weight paper by the Paper Studio at Hobby Lobby to create my white envelopes. It is $5.99 for 25 sheets but is on sale half price every third week or so. The thickness is more than adequate.

Lynn,

There is a Hobby Lobby just a few miles down the road from me. I will look for that paper. I've bought many of their 12x12 paper packs and they have some beautiful designs. I like the vintage designs, as well as the floral ones. I haven't seen the 12x12 white paper at Hobby Lobby, but maybe I just missed it. I will definitely look and be sure I can get it when it's half off. You can't beat 50% off sales!

Thanks for your suggestion. Plus, I think the 65 weight paper would be better suited for envelopes, than the 80 lb. paper.

Lynn, I just got back from Hobby Lobby. They had the paper you suggested. I got it in cream and white. Thank you again, so much!
