Today we have another DIY from Oh Lovely Day’s new DIY contributor, Courtney from A little glass box. She has a fab project in store that you are going to LOVE. Take it away, Courtney!
A big hello to all of you lovelies… I am so excited to be able to pop on over from A little glass box & share a fun DIY with you guys. I recently made some confetti bags for a party and thought it would be fun for guests at a wedding to throw instead of rice, or instead of blowing bubbles (for an indoor wedding of course). They couldn’t be any simpler to make.
Here is what I needed for this project: Scissors, confetti, liquid glue, a Q-tip for applying the glue, gold washi tape, mini treat bags (I used glassine bags), ribbon for embellishment (or anything you fancy) & gold glitter.
Step 1: I simply use the Washi tape to create a band on the bottom of the glassine bags and apply glue and glitter to it.
Step 2: After letting it dry, Fill it with some confetti (which I just made by cutting up tissue paper) but you can also purchase confetti at any local craft or party store.
Step 3: All that is left is to embellish the bag & this is where you can be as creative as you want to be. I punched out circle from a glittered piece of paper & tied it on with a ribbon. I even wrote a little message on the bag to the guests & the date of the event.
They’re quite cute & wallet friendly. I must say, I am smitten with anything that is shiny and small…so a little bag of sparkly paper goodies takes me to my happy place. Thank you so much for letting me spend my day with you guys!
Aren’t those SO cute! I’m obsessed and want a reason to make some myself. You guys have to go over and check out Courtney’s blog alittleglassbox – she has so much lovely going on over there! I can’t wait for her to share more projects with us. So, who is going to make some of these fun favor bags?
