Step Two: Apply The Wax


Insert the letter sealing wax into the hot glue gun, and let it heat up. Once the wax is hot, apply a small amount of the wax to the envelope seal.

Step Three: Seal

Don’t let the hot wax cool for too long before sealing. Use the seal tool to press straight down into the hot wax. Let the seal sit for a few moments in the wax to leave an impression.
