How do you create a Letter from Hogwarts?
To begin the Die Cut Harry Potter Hogwarts Letter, gather all supplies. Assemble the thin die adapter (blue), standard platform (grey), the first clear cutting plate, the first piece of white cardstock, the Thinlet Die Box Envelope, and finally the second clear cutting plate. Run this sandwich through the Sizzix Big Shot Machine, and then repeat with the second piece of white cardstock. This 3D Envelope completes both die cutting and embossing, so one piece of cardstock at a time is preferred.
Bend and score all of the embossed fold lines on both pieces of the envelope die. Layer the pieces together, so you can see how they fit together. Apply permanent adhesive to the base of one half of the envelope and the four tabs with the Tape Runner XL. Carefully line up and attach the two halves of the envelope, then fold in and secure each of the four tabs to create the 3D portion.
Apply hot glue to a non-stick mat, and place the Harry Potter Hogwarts Sealing Stamp in the hot glue, so that some excess glue surrounds the stamp. Let cool completely, and carefully lift the stamp out of the glue to create a faux wax seal. Paint the seals with Country Red acrylic paint. Let dry and apply a second coat, if necessary.

Flip the envelope over, fold in the side flaps, the bottom, and then the top. Apply Tape Runner XL to the back of the faux wax seal, and secure to the envelope.
The faux Hogwarts wax seal looked a bit flat and one dimensional. Dry brush a very small amount of Splendid Gold acrylic paint over the raised surfaces of the wax seal. This will hightlight the embossed image and make it really stand out.
