Fixing punctures

With three punctures in a week (slow in the rear went flat overnight
then slow in the front ditto and then tonight a roadside change for the
rear) I've patched some innertubes for the first time in years. As I was
changing the tires I decided I might as well and then keep some new
tubes for the next puncture and put some patched tubes in now.

But the patches are different from what I remember. My patches are on
paper with a foil covering them. The foil peels of easily but I can't
get the backing paper off. The first one I tried to get it off after
sticking the patch on the tube, gave up, but it was too late and I had
to pull the patch off the tube and start again.

So I've left the paper on.

What do others do?

Tim.
