Edit: Bob has a good suggestion with the used carpet! If you are going to use that without paper--use it upside down---
The back of a carpet will scratch the floor finish.
Even if using the carpet, be sure to lay the paper first and tape the seams. Dust and fine grit will filter right throught the carpet and act like sandpaper under the carpet. I prefer something that can take a hit from a dropped tool or chunk of trash, so I like laun(least favorite because the seams don't stay taped long term), masonite(smooth sideup for taping), or sheets of drywall (good side down, so you can use some of the pieces if needed)
