Looks like embroidery canvas or non-skid shelf liner.

the description says the band was made by pressing it into a grid. It reminds me of a large strainer type imprint.

I have that grid immpression mold. It is by Remy, it is hard plastic. They are very small diamond shaped grids...

Wondering if you could use real lace? Any thoughts?

Looks like those ceiling grids that you get for flourescent ceiling fixtures (2 ft by 4 ft sheets.)

That's exactly what it is.

Where did you purchase yours- I can't find it online.

Are you talking about the covers that go over the fluorescent lights. I don't think I have seen a cover that looked quite like that, then again maybe I've never paid that much attention either.

That is what I was going to say. You can actually get them in several different textures.

They are flat - go into the drop ceiling grids. Check out your local home improvement store.

That's what I think also, and they are very reasonable. I used 2 different ones on my princess pillow cake. icon_smile.gif

You could try e-mailing Ron and asking him what he used...
