Wax Paper Poinsettia

I have been inspired by the Tim Holtz Twelve Tags of Christmas and created a few using my Memory Box stamps.



  1. Stamp Vintage Christmas Words using brown ink on white cardstock tag.
  2. Distress edges using distressing tool, sponge edges with brown dye ink.
  3. Crinkle surface of tag by crumpling into a ball. Smooth flat again and drag brown dye ink across surface.
  4. Create mini tag from white cardstock and stamp sentiment (We wish you a Merry Christmas) using brown ink. Distress edges and sponge. Stamp across top half of tag the Vintage Christmas words.
  5. Take wax paper from your pantry. :) Apply red alcohol inks along with blending solution over the entire 8 1/2 x 11 surface.  Add snow cap mixative by dabbing onto the surface.  Repeat until desired colors.
  6. Wipe surface after dry with static remover (Dryer sheet)
  7. Stamp Poinsettia using versamark on wax paper.  Heat emboss using white embossing powder. Repeat two more times.
  8. Cut out poinsettias.  Layer with glue dots onto corner of tag.
  9. Cut out leaves from green cardstock and distress with brown dye ink.
  10. Layer in various leaves, gem flourishes and feathers.

Have a wonderful day!





Beautiful!!! You've given Tim a run for his money. This is one of the prettiest tags I've seen this season (including Tim's)! I've gotta try that wax paper technique.

I love your interpretation of Tim' s tag.

Beautiful tag!! I've never seen wax paper stamping... very nice effect. Will give it a try. Ive stamped on kitchen foil & parchment paper and have used saran wrap for texture...lol... not sure why I never tried the wax paper....
