I'm trying the slide lamp shade, and this tutorial (http://www.onedigitallife.com/2004/07/22/linked-slides-create-a-colorful-indoor-escape/) says I need 48-60 1.5" x 1.5" squares of heavy parchment white lumen paper for the backs of the slides.

Where can I get this? Thanks!

My whipped ice dairy drink brings the attention of many males to my place of residence and/ or employment, and they declare that its quality far surpasses that of yours. Absolutely, it far surpasses yours. I could convey to you the recipe, but i would have to demand compensation.

The instructions say it's not entirely necessary. I dunno what lumen paper is but you can get heavy white parchment paper at the grocery store in the baking aisle usually... or near the aluminum foil. It's fairly cheap too so I would attempt it with that as a "substitute" of sorts I guess. I can't find references to "lumen paper" anywhere on google except for the tute link.

Yay, I'm not crazy! I couldn't figure out what the heck kind of paper they were talking about. Thank you!

Nothing is safe in its native form.

I love vellum, and that could be cut to make the slide holders. It is translucent.  Any thin bendable translucent plastic would work. That is a lovely light. Use low wattage if your holders are paper based. While I think of it. Heavy fabric stableizer on  some sheer material might work well too.
