I did this to before it was fun :D
I tried this and it didn't work. My magnifying glass is a cheap crappy one would that effect the results?

Nice 'ible. Clear and simple instructions. I find myself writing this on a lot of instructables, but that's because it is so true! I especially like how it is a simple idea. I discovered this myself a couple years ago, but never thought to print out a design to burn into it, thanks for the tip!

Been doing house numbers for years, gotta have dark sunglasses, or you will see spots, from the bright focus point. (not good for the eyes) Charles

Great job - this is a very cool idea!!! I want to do this with my son!!! I almost bought him a kit from the store today - using a magnifying glass sounds much better and more fun!

Please before you do this go ahead and make sure you have some sunglasses on, I remember doing this as a kid and I actually burned my cornea a bit and now I have a cornea burn spot when I blink, so a fair warning, if you're going to do this for a long period of time please wear sunglasses.
Wow.. I never would have thought like that. Thank you so much for sharing.
