This Holiday, whether your baking up your famous chocolate chip cookies or fudge, offer loved ones treats wrapped in paper that echoes your heartfelt sentiments with homemade wax paper. Fold a piece of tissue paper in half three times, forming eight layers. Using a heart, Christmas tree, star of David or a circle hole punch, cut out your desired shapes.
Cover the surface of an ironing board with paper towels; place a sheet of waxed paper on top. Arrange shapes on waxed paper, and cover with another sheet of waxed paper. Cover with more paper towels. Run an iron, set to medium heat, lightly over the layers to set. -Martha Stewart
