My fiance and I are looking to do the same thing we just can’t find bottles at a reasonable price. We want them to be glass that is our issue. Where did you get your bottles? thanks

Due to the fact we are unable to travel I will be taking a group of 25 to the spa a day to feel like a relax day at the beach and this idea is just perfect.

What kind of candle are you using? A tea light in a holder I found works best (yes, it actually matters!) You can kind of see it in one of the top pictures.

Make sure you hold the paper flat, and just on the edge touch it to the flame, and slowly move the edge of the paper along the edge of the flame (so you will actually have a whole part of an edge burning). Then blow it out immediately. Keep a damp cloth or paper towel (make sure it doesn’t dry out!) nearby; it is more effective at getting a flame out than blowing on it, if it starts to pick up strength. Whatever the flame touches will darken and maybe catch, so keep that in mind when distressing the edge.

Also, a heavier paper or cardstock seems to work better than standard paper, though I have tried regular paper too; it is just more finicky.

Good luck, Denise, and if you are still having trouble, let me know and I can maybe video one or something.

But such a great idea for an intimate wedding. :)
