Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Placement
Put a small mark where the seal will be. I made a big mark so you can see it.
Step 2: Paper Weight
Use something(s) to weigh down the envelope flap. We do not want hot wax getting under it.
Step 3: Hot Wax
Drip the hot wax onto your mark. When you get a blob the size of your thumbnail stop and blow out the candle.
Sorry about image quality
I don't pay my camera men enough
Step 4: Impress
Gently but firmly push your stamp into the wax. Wait about 10 seconds or until your sure the wax is cooled before you remove the stamp.
Such awful quality images!! blek!
Step 5: All Done
I only used a small amount of wax because I don't want to waste it.
This image is better because I took it and not my camera man
I fired him
ps: I'm working on a way to make homemade sealing wax. I think I've figured it out, keep your eyes open for an Instructable on that.
