Supply Resources and Tips
CARD STOCK PAPER:
GREAT FOR ALL CARDS, BOXES, BAGS, TAGS...
I recommend that you use heavy white card stock.
You can find this at local office supply stores in a sheet ream.
Printing papers come in different thicknesses or weights,
regular paper is 20-24lb,
and cardstock is about 110lb.
65-67lb is a good choice, still stiff but not as heavy as cardstock.
PAPER FOR WRAPPERS / TEA BAGS / CUPCAKE TOPPERS / ENVELOPES / INSERTS / NOTEPADS / STATIONERY SHEETS:

Card Stock. Great for boxes and bags.

4 Inch Lollipop Sticks for cupcake Toppers
Any craft store carries Lollipop sticks in the candy/cake decorating isle.
You can get them in different lengths, too!
Where to get these supplies locally?
Be sure to check in the candy/cake decorating isle, lots of useful things can
be found in this area.
Trim out circles using a 2” CIRCLE punch for best results.
I have a Paper Trimmer and just trim away the white areas from each printout.
Paper Trimmer is not expensive at all and it's a good investment, especially
if you're into computer crafting like me :)
If you're using an X-ACTO knife, place the printed card stock (3-4 sheets) onto the cutting mat,
place a ruler onto the printouts and trim away the white areas.
(Rotary Knife works even better.)

GLUE STICKS - TIP
Glue sticks are very economical and also easy to store.
Here's a tip how to make them stick together
- apply a little bit of glue stick to both sides, on both surfaces,
and once dry, they can never be peeled apart.
Please make sure to only apply a little glue, not too much.
