Honest Paper and Sea & Paper are two peas in a creative, stationery-loving pod; it’s no wonder our products come together so beautifully. Here’s how to elevate your gift wrapping with wax seal stamps.
Step 1: Wrap your gift
Once you’ve chosen your favourite gift wrapping from Honest Paper’s selection, build a beautiful foundation for your gift by wrapping it tightly and neatly. For a polished look, try these tips:
- Measure your paper before you begin.
- Wrap tight. High quality paper is best for this, as you can pull it taut without tearing.
- Secure the paper to the box with tape.
- Hide the tape you use.
- Fold exposed edges.
- Don’t stop there! Move on to the finishing touches for an impressive final look.
Step 2: Add twine or ribbon
Whether you prefer earthy twine or elegant ribbon, no gift is complete without a bow on top. Here’s how to achieve the perfect tie.
- Drape the ribbon or twine horizontally across the top of the box.
- Pull the rest of the ribbon under the box.
- Loop one side of the ribbon around the other.
- Pull back up, vertically, over the top of the box. Tie.
- Wrap around the box several times with twine to create the style you see here!
Step 3: Set up your wax sealing station
The process of wax sealing is fun and calming, and makes the perfect cozy craft night. Set up your wax sealing station, including a burner, spoon and tea light candle.
Step 4: Choose your wax seal stamp
Pick your favourite wax seal stamp from your collection. Custom with your initials? Branded with your company logo? Kissed with a happy birthday message? Choose the one your recipient will appreciate most.
If you don’t have wax seal stamps in your collection just yet, Sea & Paper is the best place to create your own. We offer everything you need to get started — including all the required accessories for your wax sealing station.
Step 5: Melt your sealing wax
Melt your sealing wax in a spoon over your burner. Choose a sealing wax colour to compliment your gift wrapping and twine!
Step 6: Pour warm wax
Gently pour the warm wax over the twine or ribbon — the spot where it comes together in the middle, or a place of your choosing. Get creative and crafty; the possibilities are endless.
Step 7: Stamp with your wax seal stamp
Stamp the warm wax with your wax seal stamp. Use pressure to seal the twine to the gift wrap. Along with being a beautiful finishing touch, the wax seal keeps everything in its right place.
Step 8: Reveal your wax seal
Gently remove the wax seal stamp to reveal your wax seal. Are you feeling a moment of delight? Your recipient will, too!
