What are the chances of my paper catching fire if I use a string of regular Christmas lights that aren't LEDs? I have 12x12 scrapbooking paper that I plan to cut into 6x6 sqaures. It's not too thick (like cardstock) but probably slightly thicker than origami paper. I'm pretty sure they would look illuminated. I'm just worried about the fire risk. Should I just scavenge for some LEDs?
