First Thanks for taking the time to read my problem and more for replying. 

I need to find paper that is 5 1/2" x 13" (that's the size of the invitation) or bigger for my brothers wedding invitations and the paper needs to be burnt orange (or a color close to that).  The only thing I could find is Martha Stewart scrapbook paper 18"x18" but not in burnt orange or a any color close to it.  And I comes out to expensive to make 150 invitation if they had the color.  I need to find low cost large paper that could be used as a wedding invitation. Could someone please help me!!! Have a great day Smiley!

Not to advertise for Martha Stewart, but have you tried perusing through her papers at Michael's?  I do not know the actual dimensions of her paper, but they are huge and cost about $2 a sheet and fit in her ginormous scrapbooks that you can also find at M's.

You might need to purchase the LARGE sheets (something like one foot by 2 feet) in the "fine arts" section of Michaels and cut them down to size.  I did that for one project and the cost was ok.  Just make sure you cut carefully!

Or you might be able to have the framing dept cut them for you, though they charged when I asked.

good luck!

I find joy in creating and helping others create not just jewelry and crafts but best of all, the life they want.

At schools, they have those huge rollers of paper. If you have teacher friends or even just know someone at an elementary school, you could cut a sheet of their paper, probably for free. If not, contact the principal or librarian and see if they would give you a good deal. And they should have the color you need, because teachers use them for Halloween bulletin boards. Also, Hobby Lobby has good stuff. And they aren't too expensive. If you talk to a manager, they can sometimes give you good deals if you buy in bulk. Good luck!
