1 brown piece of paper
1 red candle
Write down the name of the person you desire on the brown piece of paper. Fold it 5 times towards you. Stick the pin through the paper.light the candle. Then chant: (Name), I bind you three times.
Leave the paper near the candle till the candle burns out. Once done, dont throw the paper out. Take the paper and place it somewhere safe where no one will find it.It says to use brown paper. What if I can't find brown paper? Could I use white sketch pad paper instead?
There can be a replacement for nearly anything in workings as long as your mind is in the right place. So on that note, I'd say yes you can. You can also color a piece of paper brown if you'd like. Items are just used to help you focus more on your intent of a spell.
It really just depends, some spells take longer than others and some spells don't even work not because the spell is false but because the spell just doesn't wanna work. And doubts can also make the spell not work. Here is a whole forum about troubleshooting spells. Which basically talks about why your spells might not be working and somethings you can do.
