Anybody know where to get sticky back plastic?

I need a small amount of SBP to cover a project box. But can't find any locally.
I know I can get some from ebay but the postage is more than the cost of the item.

Sticky Back Plastic is surely just cellotape?
"SBP" the term blue peter used to allow them to use it but not to advertise Cellotape (the brand).

Or Scotch Tape.

Re: Anybody know where to get sticky back plastic?

SBP as I remember it is Fablon if you want a trade name. Sellotape/scotchtape is fine for sticking parcels but not for covering something.
I remembered seeing it in £land but our local is a small store and doesn't have any in. Not tried B&Q yet, homebase is ~30mile round trip, wilco even further more like 200miles.
Will try a craft shop I think there is a new one open on one of the back streets.

HobbyCraft, if you have one locally that is!
Also try searching for "Fablon"

Or even that other well known brand - Sellotape.

I looked in the local Home bargains but didn't see it, could you point me in the direction of the general area it is likely to be found?
