The question I get asked the most is what glue do I use, and Cold silicone glue is my favorite glue for all my projects! If you've seen some of my video tutorials, you'll know that I love to use it for materials such as cardstock, acetate and foam.

A similar glue is the Beacon 3 in 1 Advanced Craft Glue, that it comes in 4 FL Oz or 8 FL Oz:

Every crafter needs a good pair of scissors and this Non-Stick Scissors are the best for paper crafts! Works perfectly with cardstocks, foam tape and double-sided tape! Also, the blade is very sharp.

I love the grip of this craft knife is super comfortable to hold and the blade is sharp enough to cut heavy cardstock  Also, it comes with 5 additional blades to swap out!

A bone folder is a must have in all paper craft projects! I use it all the time for scoring. Also it very useful when you need to fold and press the scored lines of your paper projects.

This bone folder set is very smooth and easy to handle!

The Cricut Weeding Kit is my favorite! Love that it includes two tweezers that help me to hold the tiny paper pieces to assemble my projects! Also, the kit includes different weeder, which I use when I need to take off the tape cover.

For best results, I always recommend using 80 lb cardstock paper! I like that 80 lb cardstock paper is thick for making paper boxes, cake toppers, banner, etc. 

Also, it's easy to cut with a craft knife or a cutting machine. Currently, my favorite cardstocks are from Bazzill and AC Cardstock!

Acetate Sheets:

I love making shaker boxes and acetate boxes, so acetate sheets are a must for making them! I use these two acetate sheets:

So far I love the way my boxes look with these acetate sheets! Plus they´re sturdy and easy to use.

If you haven't heard of foam tape until now, well, let me tell you it's an amazing tape! You can use it to create shaker pieces or to create a 3D effect to your pieces.

Foam tape comes in different shapes such as rolls (You can get it at Dollar tree), thin rolls to make shaker cake toppers, strips (my favorite), squares dots or round dots

Cutting machine:

Last but not least is a cutting machine. There are a lot o thing you can create with your cutting machine like favor boxes, cake topper, cards, etc! You can also customize every item in your house using vinyl!

I have the Cricut Maker 3 and the Silhouette Cameo 4 and they're definitely the best investment I ever made for small business and my home!

Both are great cutting machines for paper crafts and also each of them has its pros and cons. If you want me to make a comparison, let me know in the comments!   🤗
