~Sealing Wax~

A few years ago, I bought a seal and some sealing wax with part of my birthday money.

I have enjoyed using it to adorn letters and thank you notes I send out. It adds a special touch that a sticker just can't do! I don't use it every time I write a letter, but I do enjoy using it!

All you need is sealing wax, a seal, and a match or lighter:

Light the sealing wax, and allow the wick to burn so that a little wax pools around the wick:

Drip, drip, drip:

Now press the seal into the wax, holding it in place until the wax sets up:

and now you have a pretty envelope!

What a great idea Tammy! What is the imagine in the stamp anyhow??

Thanks, Tori. It is the letter "T" with some decorative scrolls around it. (T for Tammy, of course. :-) )

I just think that those stamps make everything look so much more elegant. Beautiful!
