Have you ever thought of placing confetti inside of the greeting cards you gift to others? Sounds crazy right? An ex of mine (yes, I’m giving him credit) use to give me cards that had confetti inside. When I opened them up a handful of hearts would fall into my lap. They were those shiny sequence ones you can buy at the store in the party section.
Why spend money on something you can make at home for less. And it’s a great way to use up any paper scraps you have lying around.
Gather your choice of paper and a heart shaped Fiskars punch. Punch out the desired amount. Personalize your card with a message and then place the confetti along the crease of the card.
When you go to put the card inside of the envelope do so with the folded side first. That way the confetti won’t fall out inside of the envelope when the recipient removes it.
This easy tutorial not only works great for your Valentines Day cards, but for any occasion. Birthday celebrations, New Babies, Congrats, Just Because, etc. Be creative and use various shaped punches. Do you recycle your magazines after you’re done reading them? Keep one on hand. It’ll make some colorful shiny confetti.
