90 gram crepe paper review by @flowersandjane

March 09, 2020 1 min read

The release of the new 90 gram Italian crepe paper has been a great success. We’ve received wonderful feedback from the paper flower community. The 90 gram crepe paper addition compliments the 60, 140 and 180 gram lines perfectly as a much needed mid-weight alternative. 

We hope you enjoy it as much as the rest of our community. Have fun!
