Want to leave your ceremony in style? There is no better way to do it then under a canopy of flying confetti! Here is a fun way to present the confetti to your guests; be ready for a colorful shower of love!
Vellum paper, scissors, a small hole punch, embroidery thread, a needle and a stack of scrapbook paper in your color palette
The first step is to make the confetti, which is the easiest part but also the most time consuming. I would suggest tackling 20 sheets or so each day over a week. More than that and your hands will get VERY tired. To make the confetti, simply punch holes out of the paper, easy peasy!
Next, cut the hearts from your vellum; you will need to cut double the number of confetti packs you hope to make.
Once everything is cut, lay the hearts out and top every other one with a handful of confetti. Top the bottom half with another vellum heart.
Hold one end of the heart and starting at the bottom, begin hand sewing around the other side with embroidery thread. Make about 7 stitches around. Do not sew these too tight and leave a decent length of thread at the bottom of each heart. Tie once at the bottom, in a lose knot. The idea is to keep the confetti in but to allow your guests to easily pull the thread right out.
Lay out your hearts with a note of instruction for guests to pull the thread and throw up their hearts when it is time. A beautiful shower of bright confetti and iridescent hearts awaits your finale.
Tip: Be sure to check with your venue before planning this project- not all venues allow you to throw confetti or rice. Happy hole punching!
