Confetti Dipped Present

I saw this idea some time back and needed to try it.  As you know, I like when things look like they've been dipped in confetti.  I decided I would try this on our present for our new little nephew, who was born August 1, two days past his due date.  He is SO cute!  I've visited him twice but I can't wait to see him again!

Here's what you do:

Wrap a present in plain paper, like tissue paper or brown packing paper


Grab a 1-inch circle craft punch, like this one


Make the confetti using lots of colored paper and your craft puncher


To achieve the dipped confetti look, either spray one end of your present with adhesive spray glue (I used this), or wrap a wide double-sided tape around one end of the present.  Then dip the glue (or tape) side of present into the confetti.  So easy!

Finished product

  4. What a really cute idea. I remember the year my sister let my niece try out glitter. She sent me a card and I swear it was my next birthday before we finally got all of the glitter cleaned up LOL.
