Can you quill with regular paper?

All slotted tools will work with regular weight paper strips. However, if you wish to work with cardstock weight paper, then you might have trouble fitting the paper into the slot. Look for a slotted tool with a slightly larger opening so you will be able to work with heavier weight papers.

What weight paper should I use for quilling?

Pre-cut strips will usually come in an acid-free paper in the appropriate weight. If you are cutting your own strips, I would recommend starting with paper that weighs 120 gsm (grams per square meter) as it is ideal for rolling and creating shapes. However, you can use anything from 80 to 160 gsm for paper quilling.
