Step 1: Supplies
The quantities will vary depending on the size and number of starters you want to make.
For this project you will need:
*Some wax in any color you want. (recycled candles are perfect and inexpensive, and you can use a small piece of crayon to alter the color if you would like)
*Some paper shreds (I wanted mine to look nice so I bought Red shreds from a dollar store, but you can just as easily use some from home)
* Some tissue paper (you will need at least 1 sheet per fire starter you would like to make)
* A heart shaped cookie cutter or ice cube tray ( Any size will work but keep in mind small ones won't burn as long, and large ones require more wax. Mine is about 3" wide.)
* some wax paper to protect your counter top.
Rice cooker or double boiler to melt wax in.
