OK, so I want to get into the paper arts, namely card-making and place-card making, stuff like that. I figured if we all pooled together to make a master list of basic stuff, that it could be a resource for others just like me!

OK, so just to start, here is a list of things that I think you would need.
Items in bold are ones I don't have.

TOOLS
Straight Scissors
Decorative-Edge Scissors
Hole Puncher
Photo Cutter

ADHESIVES
Rubber Cement
White Glue
Scotch Tape
Duct Tape
Packing Tape
Aleene's Jewel-It
Metal Leaf Adhesive

COLORING
Markers
Colored Pencils
Crayons
Oil Paints
Watercolors
Acrylic Paints

PAPERS
Embellishment Paper
Cardstock
Notebook Paper
Printer Paper
Cardstock
Old Music Books
Old Magazines
Scrapbook Paper

EMBELLISHMENTS
Glitter
Sequins
Punchinella
Beads
Tinfoil
Playing Cards
Tinsel
Yarn
Feathers




Yes, I know this list is long, but I would love the help of some expert paper crafters out there.
