awong16 :  so I used a metal teaspoon, size was 1/2. Then used a small candle in a votive to melt it. I cut up the wax seals in pieces. They come in 4 sticks if you buy them from Michael’s. The size was about 1/4 of an inch. I melted the wax and used the teaspoon (underneath) to spread the wax. And  pressed the stamp on for a good 10 seconds. One tip I have is if you’re using the metal teaspoon is to be cognizant of the underneath of the spoon. I had to wipe it so often as it had this black film from the flame. Although the gold wax with the black had a nice marble effect.

I did this. I got the stamp and wax from michaels. I didn’t cost any extra to send them and they sealed perfectly (no need for extra glue). My tips are- Mark the top of the stamp so you know which way is up, a few drops of wax go a long way, hold down for about 5 seconds. I also melted the wax over a candle then just dripped it on the envelope. Do a couple practise first and you will be good to go! It was really cheap, fun for me to do and we got a lot of compliments 🙂
