Sealed With a Spider

I was flipping through the new October issue of Martha Stewart Living and was inspired by the "fine specimens section". I especially liked the idea of the fossil cookies (sorry, couldn't find a picture online). It was basically a cookie pressed with plastic bugs to make a fossil impression. Well, all those bugs got me thinking of those cheap spider rings, you know the ones. And, soon the idea of spider rings turned into spider seals. Here's what I did:

I found this 50 pack of spider rings at the dollar store. I cut off the ring part with a pair of scissors. Regular scissors work fine.

Then I just dripped some red wax from a candle onto the center of the envelope. Pushed the spider into the wax to make sure it would hold. Last, I just let it dry. Easy.

These would make great seals for any Halloween party.

Saw those rings at the dollar store and toyed with the idea of buying them, but couldn't think of a craft. I may need them now, this is SUCH a cool and cute idea!
