Thanks for the suggestions. I just had regular waxed paper on hand, and didn't have any success with that ! But I DO have painters' tape, so will try that now. (I'm making 50 Christmas cards, and using a metal holly leaf die to cut out 2 leaves for each card.... I know: I should have invested in a holly leaf PUNCH!). May also try the bakery tissue, although we don't have Albertson's in our area.
