👋🏼 Hello everyone,

This is my first time hosting a swap so I hope you like it. Since joining swapbot, I have never seen any wax seals swap so let’s do it! Wax seals have a big impact in making our happymails or gifts look pretty and make the receivers smile. 😊

All you need to do is to use 3 DIFFERENT wax stamps. For each stamp, you’ll make 1 plain coloured seal & 1 mixed coloured seal. In other words, Stamp A: 1 plain coloured seal & 1 mixed coloured seal (total of 2 seals). Stamp B: 1 plain coloured seal & 1 mixed coloured seal (total of 2 seals). Stamp C: 1 plain coloured seal & 1 mixed coloured seal (total of 2 seals). So altogether there ARE 6 wax seals.

I know that there are different sizes of wax stamps. Please be generous...I’d say, use 3 wax beads for standard sized stamps and use 2 beads for smaller sized stamps. By then, you’ll produce good impressions of seals.

Please stick them using double sided tape onto a folding card, in which you also write your ID, swap name & date on the other side. This is to give an extra protection for the seals. In it you’ll also add 2 extra goodies. For examples, stickers, craft papers, a bookmark, die cuts, stamps, a post card, a tag, washi samples (min. 30cm long), a lace sample (min. 30cm long).

It’s always nice to try to prepare a happymail according to your partner’s profile although it’s not a must. Rate 5 IF you receive 6 wax seals & 2 extra different goodies. A heart is at your discretion. Remember that the way you present this little happymail is all up to your creativity. The sky is the limit! The idea of happymail is to make someone HAPPY. 💗

Please remember to write your ID, date & swap name so your partner can easily rate you.

Only genuine swappers are allowed. Minimum rating is 4.99. Newbies are welcome with well filled out sections. I will check everyone before assigning partners. I just want everyone joining this swap to be happy therefore I will have to exclude all opportunists or drama queens.

If you have any questions, please comment in the box below or drop me a message. I will respond as soon as possible. Cheers!

This is a wonderful idea!!!

Yay sounds amazing!

This sounds really cool, but I only have ONE wax seal and only two colors of wax (maybe just one color)

If I stamped my seal over something interesting, like some string, dried flowers, a feather or something, would this make up for only having the one seal design?

@ThrivingWell & @Paintcraftart Thanks for your both positive responses. ❤️

@snager i have sent you a dm. Please check it 😉

I finally have an excuse to use my wax seal stamps lol, been hoarding them, but never really used them and it's just collecting dust.

What kind of material I should stamp on? I have seen some videos, where the wax is poured on marble and therefore they can be easily removed. Unfortunately I don't have any marble to use this way. Is thin parchment paper ok?

@shellbee8 thank you 😊. You’re welcome to join.

@kizzlets yes please join if you would. 🤗

@silvermoonsnake it’s a good question! Yes you’re right, I would use baking paper / parchment paper so the wax seals can be easily removed.
