Continuing on with Hanne's lessons, I got more wax and made these packets. One of them has a real love letter and photo in it. I used beeswax, which also has a lovely scent while you're working.
I had one problem: too much wax on the fabric. So I ironed it to high heaven to make it more transparent so the contents show through. My little Dover iron got a huge workout, but I suppose I could get a cheap iron and use that.
I also tried waxing paper. It gives the paper an almost glassy feel and finish. Very nice.
