1. Metal sheet (this could be anything flat and metal like a cookie sheet)
2. Seal Stamp
3. Hot Glue Gun
4. Hot Glue Gun Wax (you can use the regular sealing wax that you light in which case you won’t need a hot glue gun but I find this gives me more precise circles.)
Heat up your glue gun until you can extrude the wax easily. (It needs to be nice and fluid or it will cool before you can place your stamp)
A tip for getting the size right is to put down a little less wax than the shape of your stamp because it will press it out. Too much and you will have a lot of excess on the sides. For the stamp I’m using I created a dime size pool of wax. Press the stamp directly in the center of the pool and let it sit for a moment to allow the wax to cool.
Gently wiggle the seal back and forth till it pops free of the wax.
After it has completely cooled, gently use your nail (or a small flat object if you have no nails) to pry up the seal from the metal plate. Now you’re seal is ready to be stored and used on any project you so desire! Add a unique touch to the next batch of Christmas cards you send out.
