I can insert one blank page successfully with

\afterpage{\null\newpage}

But I need two?

    Depending on what you're actually trying to do, I'd use \cleardoublepage. You should just be able to add another \newpage in the hook, though. – Sean Allred Mar 14 '14 at 16:14
  • do you really need afterpage? – David Carlisle Mar 14 '14 at 16:22

Writing \newpage\phantom{blabla} twice or more will do the job.

    why the downvote? (a reason really should be given in such a case.) this actually does answer the question, and it was the question that didn't have an example. – barbara beeton Mar 14 '14 at 20:18

This MWE should left text in page 1 and 4 and two empty pages in the middle:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{lipsum,afterpage}
\begin{document}
\afterpage{
%\pagestyle{empty}
\newpage~\newpage~\newpage~
%\setcounter{page}{2}
}
\lipsum[1-10]
\end{document}

If you want lost the page numbers, remove the % before \pagestyle{empty}.

To skip the blank pages in the count, remove the % before \setcounter{page}{2}
