Holiday Retro Christmas Cards Wafer Paper

Availability: Out of Stock
Unavailable at this time. Coming soon as a pre-cut design.

Original retro Christmas images circa 1940 taken from vintage Christmas cards. Set includes two 8" x 11" sheets printed with 16 assorted images. The images are approximately 2.5" x 3" and are designed for use with our 3.25" Square Cutter (Item #4200DMSQ1). Cookies made with these images make a wonderful holiday gift that is very easy to do. We added disco dust (Item #5320DDAR1) to the finished cookies for additional sparkle.

Complete illustrated instructions for applying wafer paper to your cookies is provided with each wafer paper order. It is really easy and just takes a few steps. Leave yourself a bit of time for the process.

We recommend our No Fail Sugar Cookie Recipe. Cut out desired shape and, after baking and cooling off, frost with White Royal Icing # ROYAL7, let dry and adhere with a thin layer of Light Karo Corn Syrup or our Clear Writing Gel # CKCL.

Note* All edible items, such as these, are non-returnable.
What is Wafer Paper?
Wafer paper is made of dehydrated potato starch, water and vegetable oil. The thin edible paper is then pre-printed with food-safe dyes. Wafer paper is tasteless and does not "melt" into the frosting, it will remain as a thin sheet of edible paper on top of your sweet confection.

I love these vintage images and have used both the Christmas and Easter wafer papers. They are super simple to use, and though it's a process to ice with royal icing, wait for them to dry, and then apply the wafer papers, it's actually a quick way to decorate a lot of fancy cookies in a short time. I do recommend piping some sort of border around the outside and even adding some sprinkles. They look gorgeous on a cookie platter, and super special to add to cookie gifts. Well worth the time and money. I"m looking forward to using them again, soon!

I LOVED these. My son and I made cookies and put these on them and they turned out beautiful. I don't know why the other review wasn't favorable, but we used corn syrup to adhere them to the cookies which we had coated with royal frosting first. We let that dry completely before we applied them. We also added luster dust and other embellishments and everyone LOVED our cookies! I'm doing it again this year. I can't WAIT to do it! The pictures are adorable!

These worked okay but look like they were just pasted on the cookie. I thought they would meld onto the cookie a little. If I used them again I would trim so they were a bit smaller than the cookie and them pipe some trim around them so the edges wouldnt be so noticeable.
