I have posted once before a question about how to cover cake boards. Many folks replied (thanks CC members!) that they use contact paper over wrapping paper, foil, scrapbook paper, etc.
BUT I CANNOT FIND CONTACT PAPER except in 8 1/2 x 11 sheets at an office supply store. Which come out to $1 a sheet and would need many to cover a board.
Am I missing something? Where do you find rolls of contact paper like mentioned in this forum?
THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP! I am starting to get desperate.
You can usually find it at places like Target or Walmart. I've even seen it at Home Depot and Lowes. Look in the shelving or kitchen sections. They come in rolls.
You can usually find the roll of contact paper in Walmart...
Wal-Mart.....also, wilton makes a fanci foil made just for covering cake boards......
You can get it were you buy the shelf liner (that's what most people call contact paper)...they have it in all kinds of designs and patterns, or clear, which is what most of us use. It's usually in the same isle that they sell hangers and closet organizer stuff in. Well, at my Wal Mart it is.
I have even seen it at Dollar stores (family dollar, dollar general....)
Hope this helps
On line school suply stores sell clear and primary colors!
Big Lots sells contact paper for two or three dollars a roll
I've even seen it in Hobby Lobby in the art supply section.
Our dollar stores sell them. You also can use freezer paper, it works wonderfully.
I buy it at Hobby Lobby in the art supply section as mentioned before. It comes in rolls and I think it's about $3 per roll. I like this type because it has a matte finish that won't take away from the paper, etc. that you are covering. (Not shiny in other words).
Does anyone know if the clear contact paper is food safe? I wanted to use it to cover a wooden board for a fishing cake but was afraid that the plastics in it are not food safe.
If food safety is a problem, you can always put a cake board/circle under the cake so it is not touching the board.
I too put my cake on a board before the big board
I put mine on a regular cake board too.......and then put a dot of hot glue on the finished cake board and set my cake down on it. I still cover it with contact paper though so I have easy clean up if I make a mess of it while decorating (which I usually do lol)
If you have Old Time Pottery Stores, they sell contact paper for .99 per roll.
Thanks so much, everyone! I was looking in the wrong place. : )
