Take your tea bag and using your scissors carefully cut off the top.
Step 4: The Procedure - 2
Open out the teabag into a tube and stand it up on one end
Step 5: The Procedure - 3
Use your lighter and set fire to the top. As it burns the flames create a hot air current and when it gets to the bottom it lifts the ash and makes it take off. Looks great against a black background.
Make sure you do this on a fire proof surface and somewhere where nothing can catch fire.
