French Newspaper Confetti Bags

These confetti bags are designed for a Paris-style wedding, but will complement any style wedding.

What You Need:

These confetti bags will complement your Paris-style wedding.
  • Rotary cutter, cutting mat, and ruler
  • French newspapers (from a large newsstand or bookstore)
  • Pencil
  • Assorted decorative-edge scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Crafts knife
  • 15 inches of 1/2-inch-wide seam-binding ribbon for each bag
  • Scissors
  • Dried lavender
  • Wide marking pen (optional)

Instructions:

  1. For each confetti bag, cut an 8 x 11-inch rectangle from newspaper. Draw a parallel line 2 inches from each long edge. Trim one long edge with decorative-edge scissors.
  2. Fold the bag on each drawn line with wrong sides facing and the decorative-cut edge on top. Open the rectangle. Roll glue over the decorative-cut edge; then refold and press the edges together.
  3. Cut a decorative edge along the bottom; then turn up the edge 1 inch. Glue in place.
  4. Mark and center a 1/2-inch-wide horizontal line 3-1/2 inches from the top. With a crafts knife, cut on the line through all layers. Slip a 15-inch ribbon length halfway through the slit.
  5. Fill the bag with confetti. Encircling the marking pen, roll the top down to the slit. Remove the marking pen, and tie the ribbon in a half bow.
