I kept looking at the empty carton of Half & Half. Could you run a wax carton through the embossing machine? Tried it, and yes, you can. Just cut it to size.

For these samples, I rubbed ink on the inside of the embossing folder (Post #2) (some are the embossed side, some the debossed side) then added the wax carton, and ran through the embossing machine. The waxy surface resists much of the ink, so I buffed it real well. The debossed image (where it pressed into the carton) seems to push the ink into the paper fibers.
