Acetate or acrylic

You can stamp butterfly shapes on acetate and cut them out

Do you know good places to purchase acetate or acrylic card stock, with or without a design? I've been to Michael's, JoAnn's, and a local scrapbook store. There is either very little variety or it's upwards of over $2 a sheet. Any suggestions?


Hi Debbie

I used to use Overhead Projector (OHP) sheets for my acrylic projects. I would print my own designs on them with my printer, following the directions on the box. Now Stampin' Up! has Window Sheets that I can use instead. I prefer them to the OHP sheets as they are specifically made for papercrafting.

You may be able to buy OHP sheets in singles or by the box at a stationery store or even online. They are expensive by the box but I have been able to buy them for less than $2 a sheet when I have bought them in singles from a stationery store. Here in Australia, Office Works is a good place to go to find OHP sheets.

Another source of clear acrylic for papercrafting is old shirt box covers or similar. Just cut them up into the sizes you want and stamp and colour on them in permanent ink such as Stazon. You would be recycling by doing this and there is a lot more that can be recycled for your projects.

Of course, you could also hunt for a demonstrator from Stampin' Up! and order some window sheets from her.

I hope I have helped.
