I remember having a wax sealing kit as a kid. I loved it and sealed all my letters. The only stamp we had then was stamp that said, SWAK, Sealed with a Kiss. Now there are a ton of stamps just look at the aisles in the craft store or on line. This year at Christmas we used the wax seal and stamped the initial for our last name to seal all 80 Christmas cards.
Using the wax stamp took a lot of time. We did a few at a time over several days. This was great muscle practice and visual motivation for Lizzie as she had to hold the candle steady to create the symmetrical liquid pool of wax. Then she would aim to place the stamp into the wax pool and hold it in place to create the initial.
Since the holidays we’ve continue to play more with the seals and put them on scrapbook pages and to seal other cards. It’s so much fun! We’ve discovered two new wax sealing kits. One from Amazon which is unique. The Harry Potter inspired wax kit was beautifully crafted and contained in a box. In addition to the Hogworth seal there was a copper spoon where chipped wax goes and is melt over the small votive candle. After it’s melted you pour into a nice circle of stamping.
The other wax seal kit came from Target and is too cute. There are two stamps which are interchangeable by unscrewing the end.
