  1. It's not just for lining a cake tin or wrapping a sandwich anymore; frugal and pretty ♥

  2. I love the colored was...that fish scale lamp is so cool!

  3. How neat are these?!?! The crayon has such a cool effect on the wax paper. I love that big flower too!

  4. I don't even think I've ever used wax paper unless I needed to wrap my gingerbread cookie dough for the fridge. How are the dying and crayon techniques created? Very cool. Didn't think anything would stick to the paper. And how did they keep the cut out hearts from curling?

  5. Wonderful projects, thanks for bring them to our attention.

    I vaguely remember pressing fall leaves between sheets of wax paper as a child in school. It was a fun project, but we never did anything clever with those finished, foliage filled,sheets . . . what a waste!

    Also these give me ideas on how to use up that roll of wax paper that I've had in my pantry for over 6 years now. :D

  6. Wow, what a great round up! It's amazing how many possibilities there are for wax paper.

  7. Totally love the projects! I should start saving because I really like wax paper!

  8. These are all really great projects to try. I've wanted to try the pressed flowers/leaves lanterns, and the hearts (crayons & wax paper) look really fun! Oh, and I will definitely try that wax paper wrap this holiday season!
    Great post!

  9. thanks so much for sharing this. I actually have tons of wax paper that I have no idea what to do with.

  10. Who knew you could do so much with wax paper!! They are all great ideas.

  11. I love the idea for using it as gift wrap for food gifts :)


  12. Amazing what you can do with wax paper! Those little lanterns are sweet and I love the wax paper with the red hearts on it!

  13. I must admit I have never yet bought or needed wax paper. But obviously you can use them for some beautiful crafting projects.
