When Life Hands You Paper Scraps, Make Confetti!

by jacin on July 27, 2011

So you’re working on a project (or in my case, I was making some pretty bunting for a special somebody’s Cabo wedding), and you have lots of extra paper scraps left, but you don’t have the heart to throw it away? Make confetti!

Cut the scraps in to thin strips, and then cut in to smaller squares, working your way down the strip.

This is an easy (and festive) way to bring your colors through in to other aspects of the event, where you least expect it. I took it a step further and put the confetti in to pretty glassine envelopes, secured with washi tape.

Wouldn’t this be a fun addition to your programs, asking guests to shower you with confetti as you walk down the aisle, hand in hand?

The crazy thing is that I was obsessed with making confetti with a small hole puncher when I was about 7 years old. I had this huge bag of confetti…that I never did anything with, ha. Ahead of the times, I tell ya.

I do this with our paper shredder! The higher end ones shred into small pieces instead of long strips. A too cool way to recycle!
