    Default Wacky web papers

    Good morning!! Any idea when the wacky web papers will be back in stock? I have been thinking about getting some but it looks like I thought too long. 😊

    They had some problems with the last batch, if I remember correctly. They were cut oddly or something.

    That doesn't really help you with when they will be back in stock, but at least you know why they are gone.

    You can make your own from freezer paper..... It's a square, cut in half diagonally. If I remember correctly, it was a 9 1/2" square.

    I will go search for the discussion and find it and repost,

If you don't have any way of cutting out a template from plastic you could cut cardboard, mark around it and then just use a straight ruler and your cutter to trim down the pieces. Or, maybe you already have a 45 degree triangle from another project. I didn't, so my husband cut me one.
    Okay, found it!
    it's a 9 1/2" square, cut in half diagonally. Make sure to use the template from the magazine. It's the correct one for the funky little diamonds shape in the middle. If you use the wacky web template, you have to adjust it on every single cut!

    Freezer paper is pretty heavy for the backing papers that you are going to just have to tear off. The plastic stuff on the back doesn't tear well, even if perforated.
    Some of the folks use old phone book pages, or the cheap sketch paper from the dollar store as it's pretty pulpy and tears easily.

    The freezer paper is great if you can iron it on and gently peel it off. You can reuse them a couple of times. Some of the shapes like hexies are good with this method. I use it to stabilize the back of signature blocks. It gives a nice backing surface for writing on fabric.

    Maybe it isn't freezer paper I'm thinking of then. I use a lightweight paper that I get at SAMs, in a box, and its used for wrapping things like hot dogs and hamburgers from a concession stand. It's lightweight and tears away rather easily.

    Wax paper works pretty good. Just make sure you shorten your stitch length.
