confetti present wrapping...


Sometimes it is nice to do something different when wrapping a present and confetti is an easy and colourful way to jazz up a gift. We simply made our own coloured dots using a hole punch and some scrap paper and card (a great job for the kids!) and stuck them on using double sided tape (best for the stripes) and glue (for the heart). The confetti does have a tendency to stick up at funny angles, so you have to tap it down well and fill the odd hole. It is also a good idea to go over the dots with a layer of pva glue or similar to make sure that they stay well and truly stuck! Punching the dots yourself means you can easily get different looks - try black and white for a smarter look, different shades of pink for a little girl's gift, yellow and grey to be right on trend, or go bold and do every colour of the rainbow.
