Sealing Wax Meets UV Resin - Tutorial + Freebie

Hello everyone!

While working on the specimen tags for my next nature themed journal, I decided to make wax charms and thought about a way of making them look a bit more interesting. I also had a UV Resin in my stash that I wanted to use along with the wax, so this seemed to be a great chance of trying something new. 
Here are the tags that I finally came up with:

I relly liked the bass dowel seals for creating the charms. They were perfect for this purpose. I got mine from Craspire:

The charms turned out awesome, with the UV Resin dome on top of them they look like cabochons. 

I filmed a video tutorial in which I share my creative process. I hope you find it helpful and inspiring :)

For those who want to use some of the images and elements that I used on my tags, I have a freebie below. Open the image in a new tab and click "Save As..."

I printed this sheet one time on cardstock and the second time on transparent sticker paper, so that I could use the butterflies and the bugs on top of the acetate in the tag window. 

Let me know what you think of this idea. Have fun creating!
