My most favorite crafting holiday is just around the corner! So, it’s Valentine’s confetti time!
For this project you will need:
- A cross-cut paper shredder
- Paper in shades of red, pink, and white – 65 lb paper works great!
- Assorted confetti
- Dried flowers
- Washi tape
- Containers or clear bags
- Large sheet of paper
Prep all of the ingredients. For this mix I chose gold and neon pink hearts and gold hexagons. I also found ‘XOXO’ confetti at Target this year! (And these cute heart dishes!) Trim the dried flowers to remove the stems. Shred your paper.
You don’t really need to ‘mix’ the confetti. Just make sure you evenly distribute/scatter the ingredients all over.
I like to combine my confetti on a sheet of paper (versus a mixing bowl) for two reasons: (1) The heavier confetti bits tend to drop to the bottom and ‘stick’ to ceramic bowls – nothing sticks to the paper! and (2) It’s easier to pour the mixed confetti into containers by folding the paper in half and using it as a funnel.
Fold and hold your paper like a taco, and slowly pour your confetti mix into your containers. I used small plastic bags; you can get these at your local craft store.
Seal with coordinating washi tape and it’s ready for gifting!
Time to go toss around some confetti! Happy almost Valentine’s/Galentine’s/Palentine’s Day!
