Wax Seal

What you need

Piece of dowel
Decorative metal Button
Colored sealing wax (available at Craft supply and Art stores)
Super Glue



Instructions

Start by finding a nice decorative metal button with a raised design on it.
Make sure your button has the ring at the back and not a button hole.
Get some dowel the same size as the button from your local hardware store and using some pliers or strong scissors remove the metal ring from the back of the button so that the button will lay flat.

Use some super glue or hot glue to adhere the button to the piece of dowel.
Melt some sealing wax using the instructions provided with the wax. Test your wax seal by gently placing it into the melted wax and removing it.

You should have a decorative seal.
Use Christmas buttons for sealing envelopes containing gifts and cards.
