Iron Waxed Paper Together for Wider Sheets

There have been times where I really wanted or needed a wider piece of wax paper than the standard size and the markets just don't sell anything other than standard. I started thinking about when I was a kid and we made Autumn leaf place mats, where the leaves are placed between two pieces of wax paper and ironed together. Voila, you can easily make wider paper with the same concept. ;-)

I agree with "caraing" I totally had forgotten about making fall leave placemats as a child for a school project - thank you for the warm and wonderful memories of my childhood back in the 50 & 60's flowing back into my memory; perhaps now I can share those memories with my grandchildren when they come over to do crafts and a visit with their mother.
