How to Prevent Warp in Corrugated Paper

Corrugated paper is a popular medium for paper crafts and scrapbooking due to its strength, wavy texture and array of bright colours. Unlike the corrugated cardboard used to make boxes, corrugated paper for crafts has one flat side and one textured side. To make crafts look as neat as possible, it's important that the corrugated paper doesn't warp. Once warped, the corrugated paper is permanently damaged, so taking preventive measures can keep it pristine and ready to use for paper crafting projects.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Purchase an accordion file or acid-free cardboard storage box for storing photographs large enough to hold the corrugated paper without forcing it to bend.

  2. 2

    Place corrugated paper in the storage box or accordion file, making sure that the paper lays in a flat stack.

  3. 3

    Store the box containing the corrugated paper in a cool, dry place. Moisture will warp corrugated paper quickly, so avoid storing anywhere that may become damp, such as a basement or near an air conditioning window unit.

  4. 4

    Paint or glue corrugated paper pieces carefully when crafting, using as little as possible to avoid moistening. Using paint that is too wet or too much liquid glue can cause warping.

Tips and warnings

  • Larger pieces of corrugated paper can be rolled to store.
