Expert Crafting Tips

  • If you have construction paper, you can use it in place of card stock. Keep in mind though that depending on the brand, construction paper may tear easily and may not actually roll well. Plus, the colors on card stock are much more vibrant!
  • you can also use craft foam Instead of card stock. Both are equally strong, although you will probably have to staple the foam together and the yarn handle in place as the tape may not stick well.
