((handmade monday)) greetings + confetti



Isn't stationery fun? Who doesn't like to receive some snail mail every now & again?

 Today's handmade monday DIY project combines two of my favorite things: confetti & stationery. Enjoy!



Here's what you'll need
thread
sewing machine
fun paper or blank paper & colored pencils to make confetti
glitter
a printer
hole punch 
sandwich bags

1. Create two columns in Word and create whatever text you'd like.  
Print them out when you're finished. 
\

2. Cut out your "cards" in miscellaneous shapes. Feel free to use fun scissors that create a pattern around the edge.


3.  If you so choose, you can sew some designs onto the paper.

4.  Cut out ziplock bags (you can usually do two cards per baggy) & stitch up the long edge, leaving the top open.

5.  Stick card inside the bag & fill with desired confetti.

6.  Stitch up the top.

7. Send to a loved one :)


love.

  6. I love the look of these. I'm (emotionally) allergic to most things glitter and even confetti. I wonder how pennies - only shiny ones - would work in them. The fonts are perfect choices!
