Throwing some creativity shapes at home

This is a completely different type of post and it is one that I am so excited to share with you.

Very simply, I decided to get crafting. I have made and packaged my very own confetti.

My wedding is approaching fast (I’m trying to not think about the pandemic and I am hopeful that we will have a wedding day of some variation). My plans, and my visions are all starting to come to life. But for someone who loves a bargain, the price tags associated with wedding days are quite unbelievable to me, in some cases.

Nevertheless, I have spent on the areas that matter to me and I have saved money by making decorations myself.

I will be honest and write that confetti making is rather fiddly. It isn’t for the impatient. However, I rather enjoyed spending a few hours a night for a couple of weeks punching in patterns to biodegradable tissue paper.

It proved to be a great option for stress relief. Who knew that a hole punch would be handy outside of an office?

The materials:

1. Biodegradable tissue paper.

2. A shaped hole punch.

3. Small zip bags.

4. Mr and Mrs stickers.

All materials were purchased on eBay. I spent a total of £11.09.

The method:

– Using the shapes hole punch, press through the tissue paper. As the prints fall away, collect then into a bowl.

– Use a mix of coloured tissue paper to give dimension to the confetti mix.

– I also used two shaped hole punches to add a different look to the mix.

– Once you have collected the confetti in a bowl, you can fill your confetti bags.

– Seal each bag, squeezing the air out as you go. Finish the packet off with a sticker of your choice.

Do you love to craft at home?

Enjoy,
