Thank you Tiggy! I forgot they had that five tier stencil set. That is gorgeous! It's not cheap, but it would last a long time and probably be quite popular!

I'm not chefjulie, but if you go to craft edge forum Heather has made two svg files of scalloped cc wrappers, they cut really nice.

scroll past the image of the wrappers to the attachment of the svg file.

I just cut the top edge with a fancy scissors and that makes it look really cool! But damask paper is impossible to find. At least around here. Or on the internet. Maybe I'm not using the right search terms...

Do you have a Hobby Lobby near you? Ours keeps several different damask print scrapbook papers in stock all the time! I am going there in a bit so I'll look on the back of the sheets to see what brand they are and maybe you can search by that term. icon_smile.gif

JoyRide, I would really appreciate that, how very sweet of you! I have torn through JoAnns, Michaels, Hobby Lobby, and Scrapaganza, (as well as searching online. At Michael's I found one that is the right thickness (almost a card stock type of thickness) but the pattern won't look as nice when cu ton a curve like you have to do with the cucpake wrappers, then at Hobby Lobby I found the right pattern, but the thickness is really thin... I don't know if it will hold up. But I bought a few anyway and will test it.

Try checking a paper store; my dh runs a paper store/warehouse here in St. Pete that sells to the public and they have different kinds of paper stock. (computer paper, ink, printers, invites, etc) The store is owned by Xpedx which in turn is owned by International Paper. IP owns another branch called "If It's Paper" and they carry scrap bookbooking supplies as well. The store is a mega warehouse of paper and they have books you can search thru. Just a thought, but might give you more choices....

You're right, the ones at Hobby Lobby were really thin, just plain old scrapbook paper and not cardstock.

Do you have a good printer? If so you could try a digital collage sheet and print it on cardstock! Like this: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=40045991

Thank you ChefJulie, that's very sweet of you to say! thumbs_up.gif

I thought about getting a pretty pattern online and print on cardstock, I have a laser printer and a photo printer, I could test which looked better. I was just afraid that the combo of printing the pages AND having to hand cut would make them NOT a bargain. The addition of supplies and time, you know? One thing I got was a sheet of the sticky back foam, and the thin Hobby Lobby paper. I thought I'd try putting the paper on the foam and cutting them out. That would be WAY sturdy, and honestly, those two sheets from HL cost less than one sheet of the printed cardstock at Michael's, I think. Or at least negotiably close. Thank GOODNESS I have a little bit of time and all of you guys kicking out excellent suggestions!

enchantedcreations, I cannot tell you how jealous I am that your hubby runs a paper store. I have this weird...*thing* about paper. Office supplies make me all crazy. If you take me into a scrapbooking type store, or even a really good office products store, I get all... excited. Like a kid in a candy store. It's almost embarassing. icon_rolleyes.gif

Well, these aren't "perfect", but they're much cheaper than any alternative that I've seen:

http://www.rosemarycompany.com/Black_White_Cupcake_Treat_Wraps.html

Google: "cupcake treat wraps"

A whole, new, less expensive option for these wrappers comes up.

BlakesCakes, thank you! That is a really affordable option!! I appreciate that link! thumbs_up.gif It's not the exact damask pattern that I originally showed my bride, but I'm pretty confident she would like this one! She originally wanted scrolls, then I showed her the damask and she thought that was just as pretty. This one is sort of a mix. I will also try cupcake treat wraps as my search term and see what else we can find that she likes.

Thanks again to everyone for your two cents. I appreciate how everyone is pitching in to help me out!
