Invitation Wax Seal

Wax seals give your invitations a lovely finish, however we can’t all afford to have one custom made.

What you need

Piece of dowel
Decorative metal Button
Colored sealing wax
Super Glue

Instructions

Start by finding a nice decorative metal button with a raised design on it.

Make sure your button has the ring at the back and not button holes.

Get some dowel the same size as the button from your local hardware store and using some pliers or strong scissors remove the metal ring from the back of the button so that the button will lay flat.

Then using some super glue adhere the button to the piece of dowel.

Melt some sealing wax. Use the instructions on your brand of wax.

Add a few drops of the wax seal to your project. Use the wax seal by gently placing it into the melted wax and removing. It should leave an impression in the wax.
