Poppin' New Year

Make your own confetti poppers for any occasion. This is a wonderful and fun project to make with your kids or friends. This is also a great project for a rainy day referred to as a "shelter in place" today. You do need to gather or make a few supplies first. Check out the list before you begin. 

   Season of Cheer Rub-Ons

   Merry Moments DSP 5 x 6
   Whisper White Scraps


   Confetti Popper

   Metallic Sequins
   Classic Label Punch
   Pretty Label Punch
   Scotch Tape
   Toilet Paper Roll

There are several You Tube videos showing how to make these simple poppers, also known as cannons. You can also substitute several supplies that you may have on hand. 

You can make your own confetti by using a hole puncher. You can use wrapping paper to decorate your toilet paper roll. 

First, I decorated my toilet paper roll with some Christmas designer series paper that I had on hand. I used regular adhesive.

Next, I tied a knot at the mouth of my balloon. 

I then cut the bottom of the balloon off and placed it on one end of the toilet paper roll. I used scotch tape to hold it in place. 

Next, I made and decorated my tag. This is optional. You do not need to make a tag for the popper to work. 

I then placed my sequins and bits of paper (confetti) on the inside of the popper. It is ready to pop.

You can cover the top with tissue paper if you want to have confetti in place, ready for use at a later date.

  1. What a fun confetti popper! This would totally fit the WTUI challenge SCS had this week with presents. These are so much fun and I love the paper you used too.

    1. Thank you, Lisa. All of these items are from my stash and no longer current. Trying to use up more things to make room for the new items. Thank you for stopping by here.
