Love it! I did the same thing with a fleur de lis sealer. It really adds something. You can purchase the wax sticks from Michaels that have a wick in them if you do not have a glue gun.  You can also get the seal there as well.  In total to wax seal 70 envelopes cost $11.00. 70 envelopes with redos for mistakes took 5 wax sticks so I have 3 leftover for future cards for the holidays and such! In case anyone reading this decides to do this last minute 🙂

I love those! I always love a wax seal and want to do this for my wedding! Never seen it from a glue gun tho, that’s smart!

winterwoodlandbride15:  did you look into if this adds postage or messes up when being put through the mail machines? I already bought a stamp and wax for ours but I wasnt sure about actually mailing them on the outer envelope or if I had to put them in another envelope? 

 

They turned out awesome!
