Here is a fun project inspired by some of the party supplies I found in France. The idea is pretty simple. You fill up a tube with confetti and when you are ready to throw the confetti you take off the lid and throw the confetti. The motion of your arm propels all the little confettis into the air. Of course you could buy confetti pre-made but our pretty confetti only took a little time to make and you can custom tailor the colors to your event. These look so nice when they are done that they are easy to incorporate into your party or wedding decor. Find the instructions and sources below.
Step 1: To make the confetti cut strips into the folds of tissue paper then cut through the strips to make little square confettis. Make sure the size of your confetti is small enough to fit in your tubes.
Step 2: Put the confetti in the clear tubes and cap the lid so they are ready for your guests.
When I spotted these gift mailers at The Container Store, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them (I love how inspiration might strike while you are looking for a kid’s thermos for school lunches). Who wouldn’t love to receive this pretty and sweet Valentine’s garland in the mail? It’s very simple to create, and really – no rules…….say whatever you want to say (I Love You, Be Mine, Love Is All You Need, or just X O X O X O).

So, I was just sitting around the other day noticing how many grocery ads came in the mail the other day and I wondered what I could do with it. Why not make a pinata? So I grabbed my winter sale flyers and a few extra party hats and got to work. January will be a little more fun this year.

It was fun to go through my archives from 2012. I tried a few different models where the first part of the year I had contributors in addition to my own projects and the last part of the year we experimented working a team to produce our projects in-house. We are still making adjustments so we can find the right set up but it has been really great working with other people. I’m excited for all of the things in store for 2013.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Method has a campaign to support a search for the cure. The Pink Your Sink scents smell amazing and will be available here and in stores the next 6 months. Here are some pretty pink things I found recently.
