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