A pop of homemade confetti makes this DIY Chistmas card so fun. It's easier to create the look than you might think!

You don't have to spend a lot to get a trendy, confetti-filled card this year. With a batch of homemade-confetti, a blank card, and a clear bag, you can achieve the look in no time! Make one for a friend, or cut and fill several cards at once to create a matching set. 

What You'll Need

  • Tissue paper
  • Scissors or crafts knife 
  • Metallic ribbon
  • Cardstock
  • Pencil 
  • Sequins (optional) 
  • 5x7 blank cards 
  • Double-sided tape 
  • Transparent bags 

Step 1: Make confetti

Cut colored tissue paper into small squares and triangles. The best part of making your own confetti is that you don't have to worry about creating uniform pieces; have fun with the shapes! Use a small paper punch to cut out circles of cardstock, then cut metallic ribbon into small pieces to finish the batch. 

Step 2: Cut card

Trace a tree outline (or other holiday shape) on the front of a blank cardstock card. If you want to add words or a holiday greeting to the front, make sure to leave enough space above or below the cut-out. Use scissors or a crafts knife to cut and remove the shape from the front of the card. 

Step 3: Add to bag

Use a large spoon to mix confetti and pour it into a clear bag. Flat, transparent bags meant to hold photos work best, but any clear bag large enough to cover the card opening will work. Fill the bag with enough confetti to fill most of the card's open shape, but leave enough empty space to be able to see the confetti move as you shake the card. Fold over the top of the bag and secure with tape, then use double-sided tape to attach the bag to the inside cover of the card. Pop it in an envelope, add a sweet message, and your card is ready to give!
