I'm not in the UK so please don't say Asda, Sainsbury's or Waitrose! Checked Tesco's website but they don't seem to have it. Where on earth do you buy this stuff?

We bought ours from the local florists.

Oh good plan, XBenedict, I'd never have thought of that in a million years. Thank you!

Local garden centre sells it by the metre here. Do you have a craft shop like Hobbycraft near you? You can buy it in big rolls there but its more expensive.

I got mine from hobbycraft but I second the idea of trying a local florist

You're welcome! smile We found it by accident and it was surprisingly cheap! My mum makes nappy cakes, she's made loads now but is still on her original roll. Hope you find some. smile

Thanks all. Garden centre/DIY place didn't stock it, but a local florist does (by the roll - it's dear but hopefully I'll use it again lots & lots) - so DP has a mission on his way home from work smile

Lidl. Cheap too.

Our local scrapstore sells it at rock bottom prices.

Gah! There is a Lidl right beside DP's work. If only I'd known, it was probably loads cheaper there.

Oh well, my hamper looks fab.

I got mine off eBay. Was only a few pound with free delivery. There were Christmas designs too

I know that you've found some now, but I bought some from Rymans, a stationery place. Don't know if this may help in the future (or help anyone else!)

Hobby craft do some nice ones with different patterns on like snowflakes or stars etc.

Lidl probably sold out now anyway. I got the tip off on here when all there stuff came in for Xmas. They have Xmas designs too- we know for next year now!

I got mine on amazon

Next year but early and get from eBay - there is so much choice and cheaper; my local florist wanted to charge £2/meter this year!!!

No help here, but I misread the title as cellophane wrap for DIY hamsters ...

Phoenix do it too

If you want to compare with the full variety of choices you should go to: eBay
