First gather the things you need:
- A candle (soy preferred)
- A variety of synthetic fabrics (satin, chiffon, tulle & organza) - don't use natural fibers - those catch fire - synthetics melt.
Step 2: Melt the edges of your circles over the candle flame. I like a soy candle because the flame stays lower & there's no residue smoking up from it. It's much easier to manipulate... soy candles just make a craft friendlier fire.
I like to lay my circles out on the scissors & gently move it around the flame. You need to hold it with something because it will get crazy hot. Synthetic fabric will burn & catch fire if you're not watching it, so keep your fabric moving. PS - you will have some jumpers. Just plan to loose a couple to the wax :o)
