How do Sparklers Work? September 26 2015
We already learned what sparklers are but not how they actually work. In this article, we will understand what exactly happens when you light a sparkler.
Sparklers are little devices that burn for up to a minute, producing lots of bright sparks. They are made of different compounds which include fuel, an oxidizer, iron powder and a binder. Now let’s understand every component.
The purpose of the metal powder is to provide the sparklers with its colored sparks. Each metal produces a different color. In our store, we use sparklers with Aluminum that produces white sparks.
The fuel is a combination of carbon and sulfur. The fuel and the oxidant are mixed with sugar or starch and water. Then a wire is immersed in this mixture, so it will become a sparkler when dries. The mixture can also be poured into a mold and create another type of sparklers. Since the oxidizer and fuel are uniformly mixed with binding and iron or steel, the sparkler burns slowly and evenly along its length.
Since sparklers contain so many different chemicals, please ensure you follow all the safety advice when using them. For instance, you must always ensure the sparkler is completely extinguished before you discard it. It is a great idea to have a container with water so you can place the burned sparklers to make sure none is going to accidentally start a fire. Also, make sure you keep an eye on any children manipulating a flare. Children must not use them by themselves so injuries are avoided.
Sparklers are a great ally to enlighten any celebration and now that you know what they contain and how they work, you can feel more comfortable when using them!

DIY: Sparklers Kit for your Guests August 15 2015
What is the key to have a nice wedding? The answer is simple: the key lies in the details. They may be related to the organization details or design, but, no matter what, little things are always what show how much effort and love has been put into the organization of the wedding.
If you are preparing a DIY wedding, everything you do with your own hands, will contribute to bring a little extra emotion to both you and your guests. One of the best ideas for DIY weddings is to prepare gifts for your invitees, that’s why today we have a proposal: a sparklers kit for them! Once night falls, you could all light them and create a magical atmosphere.
What you will Need:
- Cardboard or craft paper (not too thin)
- Duplex Adhesive Tape
- Sparkler wands
- Any other material to customize your kit such as washi tape, stickers, a stamp with your names if you've used one for other wedding elements ... as you wish!
How to Make it:
The first step is to cut the cardboard. The size will vary according to length of the wands, but it would be approximately 2 inches less than the length of the sparklers and about 2.5 inches wide. The cardboard or craft paper should be a little rigid so when you insert the flares it doesn’t tear and it would look more stable.
Once you mark and cut the paper, make two small likes at the top and bottom where, later, you will put the wands in. Leave about 0.5 inches between the end of the cardboard and the line. Based on that line, cut the paper with scissors or a cutter. That way, you will be able to go through the card with the wands and hold them in place.
Now, leave the card apart and you will manufacture a small envelope for the matches. To do so, you just need to cut a peace of the leftover cardboard based on the length of the matches you will be using. If you are not sure, make it a little bit longer so you can then adjust it. Make sure you double the size of the matches plus a little extra for the closing tab. Place the matches inside and use duplex tape to paste them together with the other side of the card board or paper. Decorate the tab with a sticker or washi tape.
Once you have both ready, paste the matches’ envelope to the base cardboard you made earlier. Now you can customize it as you wish. Let your creativity flow!
