Hello! I am here today with a tutorial on confetti...without the sewing! I know a lot of people who don’t have a sewing machine or who aren’t particularly comfortable sewing, and then there are the moments when I am just too lazy to pull out my machine. So I thought I would share a way of getting that fun confetti look without the stitching to hold it in place.
Start with a glassine envelope.
Carefully trim the sides away using a paper trimmer and open up the envelope.
Spray the inside of the envelope with vellum adhesive, as it will dry clear. (Follow the directions provided on the container of the adhesive –I sprayed mine outside).
Sprinkle the confetti over the open envelope.
Fold the envelope closed again (be sure you are happy with coverage of the confetti as you won’t be able to open it up again –trust me, I’ve tried!) Gently press the two sides together. As you can see the confetti won’t travel in the envelope when it is held upright.
Add your confetti-filled envelope to your project!
This technique also works well with pieces of vellum that you might want to add to a page, with some confetti tucked behind it. Easy, right?
