    I have tried 4 types of waxed paper now and only one has worked. It is "All Natural Waxed Paper with 100% Soybean Wax" it is Unbleached so it will not be white but it gives it an antique look that is very nice. I found the wax paper at Whole foods. (So sorry to those of you that don't have one near by.) And this Wax paper was the most pricey too at over $4 a box. So much for a cheap craft. I would not recommend trying the treat bags though. I don't think it would work.

    I used the Renynolds cut-rite too. and it did not work. No matter how long I ironed it. I also bought some a generic brand of Wax paper at the drug store and it also did not work. What brand does work? Anyone Know?

    I tried making these and they looked so cute. Then, after the wax paper had cooled it stopped sticking together and all the snowflakes slid out. I used regular Reynolds cut-rite. Any suggestions?
