Default Okay, is it just me?

I have put the gerberas together before and they did beautifully. Lately I've gotten some ranaculous (sp ?) and some more gerberas and every time I light the frayed edges it has left black all over the flowers. I am using the same kind of lighter...what is going on???!!! Does everyone else light the frays or do you just leave them that way? Do you use something else to do it?? HELP!!!

I think you're probably putting the heat to it for too long

I've never used a lighter. I use my wood burner....just a quick slide. Works great!

I second the wood burner. I don't even have to touch the edges, just keep it close by and it does the job :-)
