Default Can you give me some singed flower tips?

So I've never made singed flowers, but want to try them out b/c they are so darn cute. I've searched this forum and google, and have already found some tuts, but anything anyone can suggest would be great.

Work quickly when singeing if you don't want to be paid a visit by the fire department :-)

I read one tut that said to hold the fabric over a candle flame. Is that how everyone does it? I tried one the other night with a wood burner, and it worked pretty well, except that any little slip left a hole in the fabric, and after about 15 minutes and MANY holes I gave up!! I love the look, and intend to figure it out......sometime when I have lots of patience stored up!! ha!

Nope I use a lighter, can never get the candle thing to work for me. A few holes is fine, it makes it look more unique.
