DIY Confetti!

Hello my fellow crafters! I hope this week has been kind to you and that you are getting some project completion! I love seeing finished work in my hands!

I was working on helping a friend plan a party for her son, and one of the things that we kept lacking was confetti for the table. Most of the time you can find what you are looking for easily, but sometimes you just want to be different and have something that no one else does! While trying to find a solution, I did some online web browsing, (okay, I was on Facebook a lot, but sometimes it creates inspiration). I thought, why don’t we make our own!? How hard could it be? Well, its not!

I hit up a local craft store, found the items I wanted, and rushed home to play with scraps of paper!

Here is what you need:

  1. Colorful scraps of paper or construction paper. If you don’t have scraps you can use comic strips from newspaper, etc. It is all up to you!!
  2. Decorative hole punches. These run between 1.99 and 4.99 depending on what you desire.

Now, to create your work of art.. arrange your colored paper, and start clipping away! You will be done in no time! I suggest having a bowl or baggie near by to keep your finished confetti together until you are ready to put it to use!

This was fun! I let my kids use the hole punches to create the confetti (at which time my son informed me I owed him money), and they got to choose the paper and shape! To get the amount of confetti I wanted, it took about 15 minutes. Not bad at all! But the best part is… you don’t have to use this just for confetti! It can be used for cards, papers, decorative borders, etc. The possibilities are endless!!

Show us your creative side!
