I usually like to make these crackers around Christmas time, but this year I thought it would be fun to mix it up and make some as Valentines instead. These are such a fun surprise for friends. You can fill them with funny love notes and treats. When you pull on each side of the crackers, they snap open and all the goodies pop out. I’m a huge fan of Lindt LINDOR Truffles: they are my favorite chocolates to give during holidays and they fit perfectly inside these crackers (especially with their pretty red and pink packaging!) I also things these would be cute place settings at a Valentines Day feast! Find the full instructions, sources and more photos below! (PS – These would work great as Valentine’s necklaces too!)

Sometimes store bought confetti doesn’t come in the right colors for the party we are having, in that case we make our own handmade confetti. It is really easy to make, I just throw on a movie while I cut. For this project I used a trick I learned in Paris where you just fill a plastic tube with confetti and hand them out to all your guests. With just a flick of the wrist the confetti propels out of the tube and goes everywhere. Perfect for surprise parties or weddings! The tissue paper at Paper Mart has always been my favorite. It comes in the best colors and is so affordable.

Living in China, I come across some of the most amazing packaging. I’ve been seeing a lot of mini triangle shaped packaging lately: milk, black beans, tea, seaweed…It inspired me to create these triangle confetti invitations.

Today, I’m blending two of my favorite things: party hats and confetti! These festive hats are easy to make, super colorful, and a definite crowd pleaser. It’s hard not to smile when there’s a party happening on your head! I got the idea for this technique from Joke’s present wrapping trick. It couldn’t be easier. Just glue and dip!
