The Different Types of Paper Used for Crafts in the Philippines

Papers in the Philippines, one of the most familiar, inexpensive, and abundant materials, are great for arts and crafts. With the right techniques, however, you can also use them for anything from prototyping small models to constructing furniture or even boats and buildings. Here are the different types of paper and how you can make the most out of them in crafts.

A combination of thickness, stiffness, “tooth” or surface texture, and finish (matte, glossy, or none) can change the way paper holds its shape and how it takes pencil, ink, or glue. Here are some common variants of paper and their uses.

Copy paper

This is medium weight and fairly smooth, it’s good for writing by hand as well as for printing. It’s also stiff enough to stand up if used for small paper models.

Art paper

This is somewhat pricey, thick, and usually somewhat rough. However, it works perfectly well with pencil, ink, and paint.

Cardstock

Stiff, smooth, and thin, it straddles the line between paper and cardboard. Good for greeting cards, paper models, and other stand-up building projects.

Construction paper

This is smooth and comes in bright colors. It’s not as tough as cardstock but still good for kids’ pop-up cards and other 3D crafts. This is the best paper for little hands to practice scissor skills.

Tissue paper

Thin and brightly colored, use it to create a faux stained glass effect or dampen it and let the colors run for a watercolor effect.

Origami paper

Lightweight but stiff, it will hold a sharp crease and even spring back if you compress it when folded. Generally colored or printed on one side only. Other variants include ultra-absorbent coffee filters (for pseudo tie-dye projects), wax paper (iron two sheets together to “laminate” leaves and other flat objects) and freezer paper (good for stencils, will stick lightly to fabric when ironed).

How to make the most out of papers for arts and crafts

Folding and Rolling

For nice sharp creases — V-shaped valley folds or humpbacked mountain folds — score your sheet first along the fold line by indenting it with any kind of dull point. Meanwhile, for coils and rounded bends, use a toothpick or pencil to roll it around.

Cutting Paper

Scissors should have sharp, small, pointy blades. For long straight cuts, use a craft knife or box cutter. Run it in a linear motion and make multiple swipes if needed. You may also want to use a programmable vinyl cutter for delicate, precise projects. What’s great about this is that it is less pricey than a laser cutter.

Applying adhesive

You can build a paper art with thin paper and card by bending or rolling it tightly into rods. To make models last longer, reinforce them with clear packing tape or by brushing on clear sealant, epoxy resin, thinned glue, or shellac.
