Once mostly melted start adding about 1/4 of the crayon pieces and stir to melt into the melted glue stick. You have spent the last several hours (or weeks) adding wax seals to your stationery, snail mail or invitations and are now ready to send them out! Will they cost more to mail? Plus, they’re a great way to customize your invites from the get-go, making them feel more like you and incorporating meaningful details from your relationship – even if (ahem, especially if) you’re using a template. I like to make extra stamps on sheets of parchment.

Use the spoon to pour a small dime sized amount onto area you want. 0.21 per envelope. Wax seals do add some weight to invitations however, not significant amount at all.
Adjust recipe for desired amount. This recipe will make 5 to 6 wax seals. An envelope with a wax seal on the outer-side may require being hand-canceled (this is up to your local post office). So if you are being charged a fee for going over 1lb, there is a good chance it is not because of your wax seals. Working with an open flame means being more mindful about safety. Glue guns are fuss-free and don’t require the use of an open flame, making them safer. Place the glue stick pieces into the small mason jar and then place into the pot of simmering water.

The wax will quickly start to melt, and rotating ensures that it won’t drip off onto the candle. Easily Clean up the Candle melter and the spoon.
Depending on your melter or candle size, the wax can be hot. Never leave unattended. Never leave melts sitting with candle going with out intended immediate use.
