How To Make Your Own Confetti

I do enjoy sending cards and little presents to people, especially when I know they are going through a difficult time.

Wanting to make these as cheery as possible, things like glitter and confetti feature a lot.

Whilst glitter is pretty bog standard, confetti can be hit or miss.

Unless you make your own.

Make sure you store it somewhere safe, don’t want it sucked up the hoover.

I popped my confetti, both store bought and homemade in some envelopes.  I made those too!

A quick simple DIY that costs pennies and adds a little something special to cards and gifts.

There are so many possibilities based on the type of paper punch and paper you use. A bog standard hole punch will give lovely results too, so you don’t even need to spend money on buying fancy punches.
