Wax Seal Week With Honey Bee Stamps

Have you ever made your own wax seals?  
This was a first for me, and it was pretty fun, I must say!
Honey Bee Stamps carries a full line of wax melts and accessories and this week you will be seeing quite a bit of inspiration on social media as the design team highlights the many ways to use wax seals.

I've used mine on two envelopes from the Playful Pastels Envelope Pack.
This first envelope has light gray flowers on it so I chose a silver seal.  I used a bit of black satin ribbon and a few foliage dies cuts behind it.
This probably wouldn't be for mailing, but would be really pretty with a hand delivered gift.

The gold and silver melts are in a mix called Honeycomb Wax Melts: All That Glitters.
 I melted three of the little honeycomb shapes in the Melting Spoon with my Embossing Heat Tool and poured the melted wax onto a silicone mat.  I gently set the stamp in the hot wax with no pressure, just let it spread on its' own, therefore achieving a more perfect circle.  

I got 3-4 that were pretty perfect and several that were not.  It's hot wax and unpredictable, but for my first time, it wasn't too bad.

Next up is a white seal from the Honeycomb Wax Melts: Tuxedo.  
These are a black and white mix and I thought would look great on this light pink ombre envelope.
I added a tuft of pink glittery tulle and a couple leaves under this wax seal.  

This would be really cool with a tulle rosette under it...lots of ideas came to me after I finished these so I may do it again.

That little blip on the edge is my finger mark where I was testing to see if it was done yet. 😟
