Seamless White Background Photography Paper - Where to get just about 6 ft?

Does anyone know where I can get just a few feet of seamless white background photography paper. I need to shoot a few items for just one time and don't want to buy an entire roll for $50 like this 53 in x 36 ft one as most of it will just go to waste.

I guess I could call around to some photography studios to see if they would sell me a few feet if the have it.

I would try going to a craft store. They should have bristle boards that are 6ft.

Or try getting an extra large bristol board from an art supply store like Curry's. Kraft paper might work as well but might not be thick enough. Normal seamless is 100lb or 163 gsm.

If you don't need the full 9ft width. You can half rolls. Still the same length but half the width. Useful if you're shooting product.

Too bad you're too far away. I'd just give you 6'.

A white bedsheets will do the trick too. Iron out the wrinkles. Make sure you dedicate a light to the background and you can blow out the back.

I recently did a toddler shoot and my 53" wide roll was too narrow. But with enough of the background in fully blown out white, I could easily photoshop the remaining portions to be white as well. That would work if you just get 2 sheets of foam board.
