Hiya all, just a question I have just started doing my own candles and decorating them. I have a glass and I put texturised paper around the glass and add flowers ect they look lovely but will I be able to burn the candle as it has paper wrapped around the outside? Thank you, Lauren
Love all the candles they are great
If the candle burns inside the glass then it is not in direct contact with the paper. Right! It should be find but you have to be careful not to leave it unattended. Because no one can be so sure when it comes to fire.
I hope that helps!
