Question How do you singe FOE together with a wood burner?

Ok, so I've read on here about some of you ladies singeing FOE together, rather than sewing, or gluing, to make headbands. I've tried looking for a tut everywhere, but haven't had any luck.

Anyone have any tips or tricks they could suggest?

BTW, if you interested in buying a wood burner, I finally bought mine yesterday at Michael's. It was on clearance for $6.99, and I got to use a 40% coupon on top of it! So, check your local Michael's, you may get lucky too.

I am sure this is completely "old school", but I use a candle. I hold both ends to the flame and then when I can see it's hot, I squish it together. It works well and I haven't had any problems so far.

Ok, great! I'll have to keep that in mind.

Anyone else have a suggestion for the FOE?

So, just over lap the two ends and "cut"?

flip it wrong side out, hold the ends together and light and then mash them together. Hurts the fingers but working nice.
