{{++ DIY Confetti Popper! ++}}

This could be a fun option instead of rice or sparklers! SOURCE WITH MORE PICTURES and better descriptions!

Here are the materials you’ll need: 

·         scrapbook paper (to decorate the tp rolls & to make your confetti)

·         tissue paper (to cap the confetti popper)

·         paper straw (if you don’t have this…it’s okay…)

·         empty tp rolls (you’ll need 2 for each popper)

·         bottle top (Make sure it can fit inside the tp roll, Naked Juice tops work well)

Additional supplies: 

Glue gun

Double-sided tape

Scissors

Glue Stick

Step 1: Take one of the tp rolls & cut a slit all the way down.

Step 2: Use your glue gun to adhere the straw to the lid. *Optional –If you don’t have a straw, skip this step. 

Step 3: Use the entire roll that you just cut through. Take the tp roll you just slit through and, with the glue gun, adhere it to the bottle cap. Before you do this, make sure it can fit inside the other tp roll smoothly. It shouldn’t have too much space in-between the rolls but it also shouldn’t be too snug where you can’t push it through.

Step 4: Time to pretty-it-up by wrapping it in scrapbook paper. I used double-sided tape to secure it. You could also use a glue stick.

Step 5: Wrap the second tp roll in scrapbook paper using double-sided tape or a glue stick.

Step 6: Using your glue stick, line the rim of the 2nd tp roll (not the one with the bottle cap) and place your tissue paper over the opening & attach to the sides. Cut your tissue paper circle 2.5 – 3″ in diameter.

To make your confetti:

1) Cut slits down the paper (like the pic above).

2) Cut across those slits to create little square pieces of confetti.

Step 7: Add your confetti to the tp roll with the tissue paper on top, then slide the tp roll with the bottle cap inside. Once you’re ready to let the confetti fly, pull it back then quickly force it through. The tissue paper will break and the confetti will fly.
