How hard are they to make for novices like us?

Well, fortunately for all of us, a bride was kind enough to stop by with a super do-able DIY project for the darling little confetti containers she made for her own wedding that was featured in Style Me Pretty. From Sarah…

PAPER FUNNELS FOR CONFETTI OR ROSE PETALS

Materials needed:

  • Thickish Paper (I used the luxe fino cream cover weight paper from paper source)
  • Double stick tape
  • Xacto Knife or Paper cutter
  • Ink Jet printer

“I used the creme paper from Paper-Source and printed a pattern on both sides of an 8.5″ x 11″ paper. However you could also use any two sided patterned paper (usually found in scrapbooking supplies).”

  1. Cut the paper down to 6″ squares
  2. Dog ear the paper on one edge about 1″ in, so that the folded part runs to a point at the corner
  3. Run double stick tape along the folded edge
  4. Take the opposite corner from the folded edge and the most folded in corner and bring them together. (then press down so the double stick tape sticks)
  5. Then create your labels. I again printed on plain paper
  6. Cut the labels out. (mine say… After “I Do” Please shower the newlyweds as they walk down the aisle)
  7. I used double stick tape to then adhere the labels as well
  8. Then fill them with confetti or rose petals. I had them in baskets for people to pick up at the ceremony
