Running out of Christmas Wrap? This morning when I was suffering from sleep deprivation (Ha!) I watched HGTV around 5 a.m. The gal showed how to make wrapping paper with wax paper that you buy on the roll for the kitchen.
She put bits of string or yarn across the paper, put a second paper on top and Ironed using a piece of cloth over the top. The wax will adhere the two sheets together and you will have clear wrap with the yarn design through it. She also showed doing this with freezer Paper as the back, thread or yarn on top and then the layer of wax paper. This made a very nice wrap with the colors of thread and yarn showing nicely on the white background.
So now of course, my mind is whirling thinking of pressed flowers between layers or any other thing I can find; postage stamps? photos printed out in miniature on regular Xerox paper and cut out? Etc, Etc! I am hoping to make some of this paper and I will post for you when done but just had to share right now-ha!
