DIY Faux Wax Seals

DIY Faux Wax Seals

I LOVE wax seals. But.  I’m terrified of getting burned or burning my house down. Don’t even ask about my experience with a glue gun. Ahem. Not. Pretty. So, what’s a girl to do? Make the paper version – yay! These faux wax seals are lovely alternatives – they add that extra touch of love to your packages, letters, invitations and snail mail.

The What

The How

Step 1: Using Silhouette Studio, create an oval shape

Step 2: Double-click your oval to edit the points and reshape

Step 3: Create an internal offset and rotate to create the shape of your “melted wax”

Step 4: Select/ create a shape or letter for the middle of your seal. Then make a copy of your outer “melted wax” shape your created in Step 3

Step 5: Load your cardstock and cut your shapes using the same color cardstock

Step 6: Layer and glue (or vice versa?) your paper pieces

step2 - DIY Faux Wax Seals

And you’re done! You can use paper-punched shapes too - just substitute the letters with your punched shape

    If that’s not the cutest idea! I love wax seals and had just ordered some seals and wax last night, so it’s so ironic to see your post today. Side note: just saw a post of using crayons in your hot glue gun as an inexpensive and very creative alternative to sealing wax. LOVE your post today! : )

      Thanks, Tracey! The tip about the hot glue gun I think was via a pin I found on Pinterest. Lots of great creative ideas out there!

    Ack! This is so smart! These look so great, and I couldn’t figure out how you made them right away. If you had a second to come by and link up with us at The Makers link party over on my blog, that would be awesome. :)
