Wax paper is gone from my supermarket in the US.
The only thing it gets used for is perler beads, which go in and out of style at our elementary school. (worst thing ever to clean out of the carpet.)

Default waxed paper & other U.S. goods

Some Coles stores stock "smart buy" (homebrand) waxed paper. Look low down on shelves with foil, clear wrap, freezer bags etc.

You can also get waxed paper and other goods you might have been familiar with from U.S. at USAfoods.com.au

Just reading this post and it seems there is some miscommunication in the conversion of products/uses between the countries. In Canada and the USA you can buy wax paper which is not heat safe for the oven, parchment paper which is heat safe and is commonly used for lining cookie sheets in the oven, and you can also buy freezer paper which is a heavier duty paper that is has been traditionally used by butchers for wrapping meats in for the fridge or freezer. It seems wax paper is mostly used today for preventing splatters in the microwave yet sandwiches and such would have been wrapped in it back in the day. The ziplock sandwich bag is now the sandwich bag of choice as the air can be sealed out of the bag. Wax paper seems to be being used less and less for food related purposes so maybe we should all stock up

Where I live we have restaurant supply stores that are open to the public. I don't know if you have anything like that in Australia, but if there are I would recommend checking out that avenue. I do a lot of baking and use plenty of wax paper sheets, which I purchase from a supply store.

There's also another variety of waxed paper, for lack of a better word, that is becoming popular with crafters, especially those doing mixed media. It is the deli paper sheets, those things when you go to a donut store or deli that they use to pick up your baked goods and place them on a plate or in a take out bag. People seem to finding those cheaply at Costco and Sam's Club in the USA.

Is there an alternative to using wax paper in the intricate spellbinder dies so the die cut releases more easily from the die? I'd like to join in VSN and one of the supplies needed is wax paper also.
Instead of using wax paper cut a square out of a plastic grocery/shopping bag and use that as a die release. It is free, works perfect every time in all types of machines and you always have some on hand. Good Luck.

Default Free and easy die release

In place of wax paper try cutting a square of plastic grocery bag and use it as a die release. This is thin enough to work in any machine. Cheap enough, like free and plentiful. Always works in the most delicate designs. Good Luck.

Something like this might be an option:

I can't get it to work. The link is suppose to go to Sam's Club for waxed paper squares.

I googled wax paper squares, Australia and found many sources. Resturaunt supply places would be your best bet for finding the wax paper

You can also use used tumble drier sheets. As for the wax paper, do you have any stores that deal solely in baking goods? Or somewhere like Lakeland? Don't know if you have them over there?

What is a nude lunch?

I've always used wax paper to cover things in the microwave. I don't do much baking, but I think my mom used to line a brownie pan with wax paper before making brownies. That was before everything was nonstick. I think my MIL used to wrap sandwiches in it before baggies were invented. And of course, it was always great for pressing a beautiful fall leaf, or that melted crayon activity.
We need to keep buying it on a regular basis so it doesn't become obsolete!
Do your civic duty. Buy wax paper!

"Nude" lunches are where you don't use any disposable packaging. Some schools mandate 'nude' lunches (no pre-packaged snacks, no zip lock bags, no wrap or packaging that's not reusable ie. lunchboxes and plastic containers only).


I haven't seen wax paper for quite a while now. There is a die cut release paper that is sold through Lincraft that might help people that are after something, unsure as to how good it is, I just saw it there. (I think there's another brand that I've seen online too).

My local Wal-Mart always has wax paper available. I love it! We wrap sandwiches in it daily for work and school lunches. When unwrapped, it makes a perfect "plate" for the sandwich and the rest of their lunches.

For craft room purposes, I use the wax bags from cereal boxes - I have already bought them so might as well use 'em!

I am in Wisconsin and our grocery stores and in the Walmart stores have wax paper.
I have also used Freezer paper with my dies . It comes on a large roll and has a plastic type coating . It is a tad heavier than wax paper but works great

Here are pictures of wax paper and freezer paper

In stead of using wax paper try using a piece of the thin grocery store shopping bags. They are thin and very durable. Just put a piece between your paper and the die and run it through. Die comes out clean and all the little pieces get caught. Good Luck

You don't want thick but strong. Use a piece of thin grocery store shopping bag between your paper and the die. Make your normal sandwich and the die will just pop out. Good Luck.

In Australia our grease proof paper is like parchment paper, but is called baking paper.
