Caution: Recipe uses boiling water. Adult supervision is required!
To use it: Brush gum thinly on the back of the sticker. The stickers will curl as they dry. This is okay. When dry, store your stickers in a plastic bag or a small box. To use, moisten the sticker's back and apply it to paper.
Tip: The gum will gel overnight. Return it to a liquid state by placing the container of seal gum in a pan of hot water. Store the seal gum in a small jar in the refrigerator.
