I ordered online (not from here) a Ranger Craft Sheet. It was not in it's original packaging and does appear new. However, I was expecting something thicker, like vinyl, and this isn't much thicker than wax paper. Is that how they're supposed to be?

The sheet is all about being nonstick, so thickness doesn't matter. The Bazzill one is equally as good, I have them both and they're both great - I love having two because they allow me to spray with more abandon .... I wish they were bigger!

will wax paper work if you don't have a sheet?

Wax paper won't hold up like a non stick sheet will.

Wax paper will work, but it's temporary. Craft sheets are relatively inexpensive and will last a long time. I also have a couple pieces of 12x12 cardstock that I use to add additional coverage to my table when I'm spraying a lot - these pieces of cardstock have taken on quite a lot of spray and are now an art project all by themselves, lol.

I heard TH speaking once about the craft mats and he said that you could order whatever size you want from Ranger.....you are not limited to the size they sell retail....

It's thin. I glued mine to an old cutting mat. Just remember you can't cut on the craft sheet. I love being able to easily pick up my work surface and move it without clearing my project. Works for me.

I'm like Linda. I glued mine down to the reverse side of my We R Memory Keepers cutting mat. I use the ruled side for cutting and whatnot and flip it over for inking. It works great.

I keep my Ranger craft mat in my bag for when I go to crops, but at home, I have a non-stick oven liner on my work table. Its larger and slightly thicker than a craft mat. Think I paid $7 or $8 for it about 2 years ago.

Love this gluing idea. May have to do that.

My craft sheet is permanently "curved" in half because of the way it was rolled to fit into the packaging. Does anyone else have this problem? Do you have any suggestions how to make it lay down flat? Thanks!

Oh thanks for the idea about gluing it I think I'll get a quilting mat the same size as mine and glue it to it. I love that I can take it to the sink and wash it when it gets to the point that I have to clean it.

It would tear far too easily..........you can get them on Amazon also, they're fairly inexpensive and can be used over and over.

I just wipe mine down with a baby wipe or a Lysol wipe after each use............works well and gets the "sticky" off................and you're ready to go. If you don't have a baby, borrow one.........the wipes and/or the baby!!

Thickness would be nice, but then you can't roll it..but it would be handy for cutting on if you have one for crops and one for home! Great idea.

I keep my rolled and not folded...........then just put some "weights" on the corners when I'm using it....there's always enough "stuff" on my work surface that comes in handy

Great idea.........I keep mine rolled and it does the trick....but having two is definitely worth it, especially since they're very inexpensive

It is............and I purchased mine from here in its original box........rolled and it's still going strong. Just a baby wipe to clean it off after working and it's ready for the next day.........I've always thought two would be ideal..one for crops and one to "mount" on a cutting board or something a little more sturdy to keep at home. Worth the price, since they're fairly inexpensive.
