View Full Version : Hama bead paper

I've ran out of hama bead paper and have been using grease proof paper but it keeps sticking, what do you use? and does anyone know where I can get the "proper" ironing paper cheaply?

p.s. I am annoyed how many attempts it took me to spell grease right!

Have you got greaseproof paper or cooking parchment? one is better than the other. I find that you can only do a couple of bead patterns before greaseproof starts sticking. Our local independent toy shop does lots of the hama bead sets and extras and they sell the ironing paper so I would imagine other toy shops do it too. However 1 pack of the 'official' stuff is more than a whole role of greaseproof.
