Giant Confetti Bags DIY

This DIY project contains two things I am obsessed with. 1. Giant Confetti. They sell it at all the party supply stores here in France and I have to admit I have stocked up on way more than I could ever justify owning. And 2. Printing on paper bags with a home printer. It is still one of my favorite tricks ever for fancy looking favor bags. Go here for more pictures and my tips on how to do this at home.

    i tried doing this with tissue paper a heart puncher, and the paper wouldn’t punch clean. it was all gnarled and chewed looking on the edges. any troubleshooting tips?

    This is great! I can’t say I’ve ever seen it over here though – what shop do you get it in? Thanks!

  4. Ooooh how fun! These would be great favors to hand out for New Years Even that everyone can throw at a party! I love this. Thanks so much for sharing.

    @ Ginny – I’m not sure what Jordan’s trick is, but in my case, I found in the past that you must punch many layers of tissue paper together. I hope that helps you!

    Adorable! Love the tissue paper idea… I just did this for my wedding with a heavy stock paper, and my wrist and hand muscles were super-sore from all the punching… wish I’d seen this sooner!

    This is awesome! I recently found a postcard that had giant confetti or shapes inside, it was really cool.
