Step 1: What You Will Need
2 sheet trays
a hot glue gun
salt dough or sculpey clay
1 sheet of copy paper
an ice pack
wax paper (parchment paper works to!)
Step 2: Stain Your Paper
Take your sheet of copy paper and your envelope and let them soak in the tea for 2 minutes.
Take them out of the cold tea and put them on the paper towel. Let them dry until they are crispy.
Step 3: Trim Your Envelope.
Step 4: Print Out the Letter!
Step 5: Make Your Wax Seal Stamp
Now make one of the ends very flat.
Bake it at 170 degrees and stand it up so the flat side is on the bottom. Before it gets totally hard take it out and carve in with your toothpick whatever symbol you desire. But remember to carve it in deep (about a quarter of a centimeter).
Now let it bake the rest of the way on its side.
Step 6: Stamp Your Seal!
Dip your stamp in the oil so that the etched in side is coated.
Stamp it on the glue and hold in place until the glue is dry and hard.
Slowly lift up the stamper and peel the glue off the wax paper.
Step 7: Paint Your Seal.
Leave to dry for a while and handle the finished seal VERY carefully because the paint chips real easily.
Step 8: Glue on Your Seal.
I did not want to glue my seal on completely so when someone opens it, the envelope doesn't get ripped open and destroyed.
So I glued on half.
So what you want to do now is to glue the bottom half of the seal to the front of the envelope. So then you can just tuck the envelope's flap under the seal!
Put your letter in the envelope and VOILA! You now have your very own Hogwarts Acceptance Letter!!!
