What the heck is waffle paper?

That was the question I have been asking myself for a long time.  Well, I finally bit the bullet and ordered some, got it in, and actually sat down yesterday and tried to figure out how one would use it!

It is rather odd stuff, extremely thin and crinkly, but you know, now I can actually envision ways to use it!  It only comes in silver, gold and white, and of course I got all three, cause you know I can be a bit OCD at times.

I figured out that it is better to show a torn edge, at least in my opinion, so it looks more natural...

Here I use the gold waffle paper behind an edge made with one of the new Edgelits...have I mentioned I love those too?  See how it is all crinkly?

This is the finished card, which also uses the new Doily Embosslit.  Pictures never do the real project justice.  The waffle paper really shines and goes well with my brown and blue theme.  Can you guess my favorite color combo?

As I mentioned on the 365+1 blog  HERE  I can't show you what else I made until after Thursday.  Two cards for a coworker who is leaving were made and they turned out really well.  I'll show you on Friday...promise!


  1. Hmmm...I was wondering what you would use that for! I think I kind of like it! Wonder if it will cost extra for postage?

  2. I am so glad you posted this! I bought the white with all intention of using it and have been stumped! Love how you used the gold!
