A homemade envelope closed with a waxed seal
Make your own envelope from paper, using a scoring board. The envelope is sealed with DMC metallic gold thread and a wax seal.
How to do it
Cut a square piece of paper measuring 21 x 21 cm.
Study the table on the right of the scoring board. A 21 x 21 cm piece of paper can be made into an envelope that fits a 10.2 x 15.3 cm greeting card.
Place the paper along the scale on the left. The lower edge must be placed at 8.8. Score in the groove diagonally. Repeat at the other side.
Turn the paper 90° and let the scored line be a extension of the Score Guide. Score again along the diagonal line as shown in the photo. Repeat this procedure on the last side, scoring a total of four times.
Cut notches using the supplied paper punch where the lines cross. Round the corners using the same paper punch as shown in the photo. Fold the envelope; i.e. the sides first and then the top and the bottom at the end.
Wrap DMC metallic gold thread around the envelope. Secure the ends of the thread with pieces of masking tape as shown in the photo.
Light the sealing wax stick and drip wax onto the back of the envelope to seal it.
Push the seal into the wax. Don't remove the seal until the wax has hardened.
