What is the best paper weight for paper flowers?
I almost always use either 50 or 65 pound weight cardstock. At times I have gone up to 80 pound but never any higher than that because it becomes too difficult to get a smooth curl to your petals at a certain thickness.
Can you make paper flowers with a Cricut?
Whether they are giant wall flowers or small Cricut paper flowers, they make me happy. And the best part is you can make them any color, almost any variation you want, and they don’t die! Cricut flowers can be used to embellish almost anything.
How do you make a beautiful tissue paper flower?
Cut and Add Green Leaves Make a 2-inch fold in a piece of green cardstock or construction paper. Draw leaves on the folded edge. If you used 12-by-6-inch tissue paper for the flower, the leaves should be at least 4 inches long and about an inch at their widest point. Cut out the leaves.

Does Mod Podge make paper waterproof?
As I said before, no, Mod Podge is not waterproof. The combination produces a product that is somewhat water resistant, but not waterproof. If a few drops of water end up on your Mod Podge project you can wipe them away with ease. You aren’t going to ruin your craft with just a little bit of water.
