Hi! It really depends on what kind of shape you are creating with your paper mache, but I good standard with is about 1". If you are making something larger without a lot of curves, you can use wider strips. Sometimes people even use pieces as big as half sheets of newspaper when they are making something large and flat, but if you are making something small with a lot of details or curves, you need narrower strips. I'd say I never use strips narrower than 3/8" because narrower than that, they will disintegrate too easily. Hope that helps :)
