Wax Seals

When we first got engaged I happened to find a W stamp and some silver wax on sale.  Of course I snagged it, but we have yet to use it.  Although I’m not technically a “W” yet, we decided to test out the seal on our thank you’s from our engagement party.  They turned out pretty cool!

Our supplies and our blank thank you notes:

W Stamp 005

W Stamp 006

Tony melted the wax for me.  We did a few practice runs, but he started to get it down pat. 

W Stamp 007

He said it worked best to slowly swirl the wax stick around while on fire, then as it drips to move the wax into a larger circle.  I then stamped the wax with the seal, and viola!

W Stamp 008

Simple, but fun and a very cute touch.  We thought we should make this our signature for all of our cards from now on.  And, it was fun to do together!
