    I’d lick them.  or you could get a pretty sticker instead of tape to use to seal them shut as extra insurance 🙂

    I used a glue stick. I can’t imagine licking so many envelopes LOL

    Remember Seinfeld episode where Georges fiance died from licking envelopes ? LOL!

    @Lulume:  This is exactly what I thought! Don’t lick the envelopes!! 🙂

    Glue stick is the way to go. The double sided tape might unstick and licking is a pain.

    I used a tiny sponge to “lick” them shut and then I sealed them with a silver envelope sticker.

    or you can use your finger and dip it into a dish with some water, and use that instead of licking, Just make sure you get the right amount of water – not too much,and not too little.

    I used one of these things and just dipped the tip of it in a cup of water:

    Use a dense sponge to “lick” them. I’d also put a sticker on the apex of the flap – but also, I like stickers 😛

    Test a few and see if they hold up to some abuse! 🙂

    dampen a paper towel and rub along the sticky part.  much better than licking.

    foam brush, sponge, qtip, glue… anything! I’d get sick of licking them after 3 of them!

    I used glue dots, and they all got there in one piece.

    I used a damp sponge and it worked fine.
