confetti of love.

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 Scissors 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 …

that cupid hit me. mmm mmm.

Love is in the air and Valentine’s crafting is in full swing. Here’s a simple DIY that you can use as a Valentine’s greeting or party decor. Materials & tools: Wooden dowel / pencil / stick Colorful paper Decorative tape Adhesive (glue tape recommended) Scissors Step 1:┬áCut out two hearts (or two triangles) for the arrowhead and two tail shapes.┬áThese can be any size, but note each heart pair and each tail pair should be the same size. Step 2: Glue the arrowhead and tail to the dowel. Attach the corresponding arrowhead and tail so that the dowel is sandwiched. Step 3: Cut the tail fringe. Step 4: Add decorative tape. Add as much or as little as you wish! Step 5: Spread the love. Cupid’s got nothin’ on these arrows!
