Wen to the local hardware store to get other things, figured they'd have them and I swear they looked at me like I had just sprouted a second head or something icon_eek.gif

Isn't this just parchment paper sold in sheets? If so, do you have a GFS or a flower factory, or any catering/small business supplier? They should carry it. Sams, or cosco I think they call them, should have it too, but I doubt a hardware store would.

I think I have seen that at Hobby Lobby in the art section.

Country Kitchen Sweet Art has them. Also, I believe Chef Rubber has them too.

Office supplies stores will have it as overhead transparencies. Usually they're standard paper size but can easily be cut to the size you want. I have two that are slightly larger than my hand, cut from one sheet.

I bought an expandable plastic file folder and but it apart. I ended up with one large piece and several smaller pieces to work with. It's a little heavier than regular acetate, but holds up and washes very well. I've even put it in the dishwasher.

You can buy sheets in an art supply store, often they are in a bound tablet form with tissue between each sheet. They come in all sizes. the l;ast pack I bought was 11X17 inches. I also bought acetate by the yard at Michaels or Joanns, it was in the fabrics section. They had a variety of weights and the bolts were about 48 or 56 inch wide stock.
