I usually just hit up Target and get rolls of wrapping paper.

With the holidays coming up, you can get like three rolls for $4 that have about 3-4 yards each.

You can just use the blank side of any christmas paper or buy the all plain white one.

No, no... the stuff that comes on a roll.  It's only wide enough for one pattern piece at the time, but at this price that shouldn't be a problem.

Or just go to Hobby Lobby and buy their paper.  It's a couple bucks for 25 feet.

Or go to your local newspaper and ask for a roll of newsprint.

All those are cheaper options than buying actual pattern paper.

If you really want tissue paper, you can just buy the packs of plain white tissue paper for gift wrapping. They're than less than a dollar a pack and you get a lot of sheets. You'd have to do some taping for large pieces, of course, and you can't use a felt-tip marker on them, only pencil or ordinary pens, but it's doable.

i go to a medical supply store and get rolls of the paper doctors use for their examination tables. it's not quite wide enough for a pair of pants but almost. it's nice because it's see through and more durable then tissue paper. and not too expensive either.

Can also go to your local newspaper place, they usually have rolls of the newspaper without the print.

Yeah, I think they call them "butt rolls".

Ahem... I got some wrapping paper from the dollar store that has grid lines printed on the back! for perfect gift wrapping, of course. So if grid is what you want on wide paper scour the wrapping paper!

Tender Thoughts on the label & CLEO on the paper itself for name brand refrences.

That's a good idea, especially with the post-Christmas sales coming up.


The oddest thing I have used wasn't paper at all, but a cheap plastic tablecloth from the party supply aisle in, I think, a Dollar General. Someone said it was a good idea. Pros: They're really big, they're easy to see through, and you can use Sharpies on them. Cons: They're slippery, and I found myself obsessing that I might stretch it (where lightweight paper would tear if you accidentally pulled against it, the plastic might stretch). I'll probably stick to various kinds of paper in future.
