    I love your blog, and this video is great.
    A quick question – what weight is the construction paper you use for covers?
    Thank you and keep well,

    1. Oh good question Karen, I actually can’t say exactly what weight they are unless I’ve used watercolor paper. Many years ago, I bought the fancy construction paper (the one you buy a sheet at a time that are very large) from Michaels that was heavier than print paper but not as heavy as watercolor paper. Maybe like a drawing paper so maybe 80 lb. It worked really well.
