Paper Lanterns

I haven't been to the burn since 2002 - so I am not sure if this is still happening on the playa, but the last time I was at the burn there was a ceremony with paper lantern. They had small candles in them and were released into the sky (almost like little glowing hot air balloons). It was incredibly beautiful.

A friend of mine recently died and I was thinking doing a similar ceremony might be really fitting and beautiful - I just don't know how to make the little flying lanterns and can't even seem to find a webpage with information about them.

If you have any idea what I am talking about please point me in the right direction. It would mean a lot. Thank you.
