Here are some seed packets I cut out of wax paper. The packet on the left is regular wax paper. To the right is wax paper embossed with the Sunshine Impression Plate. You can't really see the impression in the picture or in real life. The next two are cut from wax paper and then run through the Cuttlebug with a Square Lattice and Houndstooth embossing folders. The one on the right is some wax paper I had left over from last holiday season, that had snowmen and snowflakes printed on it.
Here is a close up of the wax paper packets that were embossed before assembling. (Now, I am wondering if it might work even better if I had taped them together before embossing--another project for another day).
Here is a better view of the wax paper with the snowman pattern. These are so cute. I'm going to check Target to see what other patterned wax paper they have. These would be cute for Halloween treats, if I can find Halloween-themed wax paper.
These seed packets are cut out of PTI Linen Vellum, PTI Vellum, and unbleached parchment paper (for baking). If I were a better photographer, you would see that the Linen Vellum looks pretty much like white cardstock, but the regular vellum and the parchment paper are somewhat translucent, which would be great if you want to show a partial view of the contents.
Here are those same packets shown with something in them, so you can see how translucent each type is.
These last are cut from (left to right):
-A map of San Diego I got from AAA
-SU newsprint paper
-Patterned paper from Michaels-PTI white cardstock stamped with Little Bitty Bird
Flip view of the last two. I stamped the back top portion before assembling. I used Scor Tape as my adhesive on all of them.
Sorry about the length of this post, but I just had to share my excitement about this die. If you have any ideas about what I should do with all these packets, please let me know.
