Make Your Own Laser Cut Invitation With Wax Seal Detail
I’m going to admit to being a little bit in love with wax seals. They are fun to work with and are a beautiful addition to your wedding stationery. Traditionally, wax seals have been used a a beautiful and secure way to seal envelopes or scrolls. But we’ve added a little twist. With this beautiful invitation, we wanted to show you how you can use wax seals to add an extra dimension to your wedding invitation projects.
The lovely thing about wax seals is that once you’ve purchased the seal, they are a really low cost way of carrying your theme through all your stationery. The range of available wax colours also means that it’s really easy to match the colour to your theme.
To Make This Invitation You Will Need:
1 x Elegance Laser Cut Invitation
1 x Elegance Insert
1/2 sheet of Wine Red A4 Card
1 x Scroll Heart Wax Seal
1 x Burgundy Sealing Wax Stick
High Tack Double Sided Tape
And ……. a non stick baking tray (see the video)
Once you’ve got the knack of using the seal, these invitations are really easy to make.
TIP – Change the sealing wax colour or the backing card to coordinate with your theme.…..I
First, you’ll need to make enough wax seals to have 1 seal for each invitation.
To make the wax seals, you will need a non stick baking tray (grease proof paper will also work well); your wax seal and a cool melt glue/wax gun.
To help you out, we’ve put together a quick video to see how it’s done:
Here are the written instructions:
- Place your wax stick into your cool melt wax gun. Turn it on and wait for the wax to warm up (appx. 5 minutes).
- Sqeeze a blob of glue onto the tray (or greaseproof paper). Depending on the gun you are using, one or two squeezes of the trigger should be enough. Quickly press your stamp into the wax. Leave the stamp in place until the wax is dry. Once it is dry, you pull the stamp out of the wax. You should now be able to easily remove the seal from the baking tray (or greaseproof paper)
Tip ….. You don’t need to worry too much about the shape of the wax before you press the stamp into place. In most cases, the stamp will naturally force the wax into a disc shape.

Now, You Can Begin Making The Invitations
- Use a paper trimmer to cut the pearlised ivory insert down to 12.75cm x 12.75cm
- Cut a piece of Matt Wine Red A4 Card down to 14.5cm x 14.5cm
- Download the Invitation Template Type your wording into the printable area and print on to the pearlised ivory insert. (We used the fonts Melika Letter and Chanticleer Roman NF).
- Use your high tack double sided tape to stick the printed invitation panel to the centre of the matt red wine card panel. Slide the invitation inside the flaps of your laser cut invitation. (If you don’t want the invitation loose inside the laser cut invitation, you could use double sided tape to stick it into place).
- Close the flaps of your invitation.
- Take one of your pre-made wax seals (see the video above). Place it face down on a flat surface, making sure that the heart pattern is vertical to you. Peel off 2 strips off high tack double sided tape appx. 1.5cm long. Place one piece of tape on each side of the wax seal. Peel off the backing tape. Holding the flaps of your invitation closed, press the wax seal in to place at the centre of the laser cut invitation (where the flaps meet).
And you’re done! This is a really fun invitation to make so why not give it a go?
