Get Crafty! 5 Ways to Make Your Own Confetti
This is probably hard to believe, but I don't know how to make confetti. Does that sound like the dumbest thing in the world? I knew it involve cutting paper, but I wasn't sure if there was a secret trick to it.
Here's a secret: there isn't.
Here's another secret: it's great if you're filled with rage and need a healthy outlet to just rip and cut stuff! Haha.
So if you're just like me, a little dumbfounded on how to make confetti, this blog post is just for you. I've rounded up a few ways to make fun paper to throw everywhere!
01: Good Ol' Scissors!
This is really what confetti is about. With scissors you can make big fat squares of confetti or smaller pieces (your hands will be sore!). You can even haphazardly make triangles or trapezoids. There's no need to strive for perfection here.
03: Fringe Scissors
This method falls under the "stuff you probably don't have laying around your house" category. I have been looking for an excuse to buy these Martha Stewart fringe scissors. They're great for making tassels and a quicker way of making small pieces of confetti.
I saw this idea from Color Me Katie. I'm not sure if I did it wrong (or maybe she didn't really use a blender), but my confetti came out very fluffy. I would say this is the least favorable method of making confetti, but it did make some very fun results. Fluffy paper and fuzz everywhere? It's a beautiful mess.
05: Paper Shredder
If you have a cross-cut paper shredder, this is probably the easiest and requires the least amount of effort. Think of how quickly you can make a ton of confetti!
Now go forth and make pretty confetti!
