  2. I LOVE these little bags! What a cute idea. Now I have to go buy a box of this waxed paper. Just when I thought I had everything I could ever need to craft with…….lol Haven’t used my decorative scissors for ages, so it will be great to put them to use again. Thanks for sharing!!!

    Love these, what a great idea! I think they’d be great for scrapbooking to hold memorabilia too. As always, you rock!

  5. Thanks for sharing. Did you try ironing the wax paper? I used to make some projects and we would iron the wax paper. That has been many years ago and they may not but enough wax on it these days for it to hold. Thanks for the idea. Wax paper is pretty cheap.

    1. Hi Vonette,
      I remember ironing wax paper when I was a kiddo but I haven’t tried it recently. There are a lot of cool crafts you can make doing that though…if memory serves. 😉

    Great idea for using up scraps around the house. I wouldn’t have thought the ink would stick!

  8. I am already thinking of 100 ways to use the little bags. Thanks. You can punch waxed paper if you take your time. Grab that piece of scrap cardstock (thinner is better) and layer it under the waxed paper. Have fun!

  9. What a great idea! So happy you shared and I also love the idea for using them as pocket holders in your scrapbook.

  10. love it! saved me couple bucks also! Already have waxed paper and was wanting some little bags to scrap my recent vacation and believe I could make these cuter than buying some! Just can’t get stuck on your blog lol and I have a feeling that will be a problem1! I have to have more self discipline! once i start on blogs it so hard to get off and go craft something myself!
