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.

The way we talk about paper in the United States is amazingly convoluted. The short answer is that 500 sheets of bond paper with a size of 17″ by 22″ have a weight of 20 pounds. The manufacturer would cut a sheet that big into four letter-size sheets, so a 500-sheet ream of 20-pound bond paper weighs 5 pounds.

Not to complicate matters but there are two standards of numbers used to describe the thickness of text paper. Take 24 lb (#) paper and 60 lb (#) paper. They’re the same thickness, same texture, and same weight; they’re used for the same thing and interchangeable when you order printing.
