confetti


hi and happy wednesday!  i'm going to try and do the james show wrap up as my Foto Finish weekend post since i still have a bunch of photos from that evening to go through and edit.  (it was a great show but i'll tell you more about it on friday.)

today i wanted to share some little confetti notes i made last week and i have a mini tutorial to go with them.  little bags of confetti are super-hot right now in the crafting world and i wanted to try my hand at making them.
  

to make mine, i put tinsel glitter, different shapes and colors of sequins, and some tiny beads all together in a little glassine envelope and sewed it closed.  i folded it over so that the flap was pointed up and would leave a little pocket for a small tag.  i think you can see what i mean in the photos. 
above is the tutorial i put together to show you how i did it.  i apologize for the quality of the pictures.  i took them with my iPhone as i went along and my studio light is pretty terrible.  i used Instagram to add a little visual appeal to them.  you get the idea, anyway.
here is the finished product, a little 2.75" x 4.25" card decorated with some Crate Paper products and featuring the little confetti bag front and center.  i used papers from the Random and Paper Heart collections.  the yellow border sticker at the top and the yellow tab sticker used to secure the confetti bag flap pocket are both from Paper Heart.  the paper lace doily can be purchased from my etsy shop here.   
i actually made the note set to play along with the april Crate Paper color challenge but naturally i missed the deadline!  oh, well, it was fun anyway.  have a great wednesday!
