Thanks for the tutorial, I’ve been waiting for something like this. Can you please let me know what kind of paper to use. I see a lot of blogs refer to cardstock but is there a particular weight paper that works best in the printer? Thanks again!

Hi Lacy,
Thanks for your question! We usually recommend using a 44lb cardstock or you can use Matte Photo paper.

Hi, I just want to say that you are doing an awesome job with this blog, really brilliant ideas and do- it -yourself projects. I have just one question,is it ok to use scrap booking paper to create party circles for cupcake toppers and placement cards? I’m planning a batman theme party for my nephew and I really needed some advise on what paper to use for such projects.thank you in advance.

Thanks for the kind words, Nicky! You can definitely use scrapbook paper for the party circles and place cards – and for a lot of other things too… try cutting strips of them for “napkin rings”, lining food trays, embellishing vases, etc. with decorative papers. I used to use scrapbook paper all the time before I started designing party printables. The design possibilities are endless too since there are so many different scrapbook papers available! You definitely want to use the standard 12″ scrapbook paper weight for things like party circles too – it’s a little thicker than regular paper and feels kind of like a fine card stock. Good luck with the party! :)
