    Ladies... after weeks of trying to find an alternative to Freezer Paper for stenciling, appliqué and other crafty things... I'VE FOUND IT!

    For those of you working in offices, this shouldn't be too difficult to find...

    The paper that's wrapped around reams of XEROX BUSINESS PAPER (as per picture!!) Shiny side down, ironed on without steam and it works just like freezer paper AND it's recycling. I for one am a VERY happy bunny :)

    Enjoy!!

    (note: some of the business paper comes wrapped in plastic, don't use this, only the plasticised paper!)

Thank you so much for this! Freezer paper's so expensive here in the UK! I can't wait to try it out! Happy

It only sticks when you iron it on!

It's a waxed/plasticised paper that sticks (quite firmly) to fabric until you peel it off. It leaves no residue though!

It's used for stenciling fabric and for needle tuck applique in quilting Happy

Arty, I've been using it this weekend for needle tuck applique on a baby quilt and it's just like the freezer paper we got when I lived in Belgium as a kid. Tesco Value printer paper wrappers work as well Happy

I can't beleive I've tried ironing so much paper to find it, now I know I can use the stuff from the office I'm gonna get a small stockpile going Happy

Cool thats a really good idea. Freezer paper costs a small fortune and you can't get it in the UK Happy

The wrapping material you use for this, i to be used for much more. I have made some kite of this, and you can when you use protecting you can melt it with your iron to got special effects and so you will got shapes for jewelry and you can paint on it too.
And more of it you can use it for cloth making.
its awesome this wrapping material. i'm agree with you;-D
