Upcycled sealing wax stamps:
For these stamps, you just need wine corks and metallic buttons.
What I love the most of that project is that you can use sentimental or heirloom items that you have kept for a special occasion, or those handed down from loved ones.
That DIY is really easy, just glue the button to the wine cork (I used hot glue).
The wine cork might came from a special occasion too, like a wedding, birthdays etc
Once your stamp is ready, you just need the sealing wax.
Melt 1 tbsp of beeswax and add some color from an old crayola, add also a tbsp of glue from hot glue tubes ( and yes! Crayola are made from wax! Longtime ago I shared an easy lip balm recipe using them as well. Find it here.)
Once it’s melted, carefully put a tsp on the envelope and use your upcycled stamp like on the video below 👇:
And voilà ! Your love letter is ready to be sent!
Perfect for Valentine’s day, either you are single or not! You can of course send love letters to family members or friends !
