This idea is so simple that I almost didn’t post it (pun not intended haha). But sometimes when I’m photographing a project I’ll think at the last minute that confetti would be a nice touch. Usually I’m rushing to get good pictures before the light changes or a certain cutie wakes up from his nap, so I don’t always have much time.
So I started cutting up Post-it Notes to make confetti and it works perfectly. The paper is colorful, and such a great thickness. Plus since they are already pretty small, you can make a whole lot of confetti in literally 5 minutes.
What you do:
- Start by pulling off about 10 sheets of Post-it notes. You could really use as many as you could easily cut through at one time. Fold over the top sticky part to make a line. You don’t want any of the sticky in your confetti.
- Cut vertical lines across the notes that are evenly spaced. You could play around with different sizes and shapes of confetti, but I made little squares. Cut all the way up to the folded line.
- Now turn the notes and start cutting horizontal lines. Your confetti will fall off into a pretty little pile. Stop cutting before you reach the folded line.
And that’s it. Seriously this post-it note confetti is fastest project ever. It would even be perfect for party decorations, or to use as a photo prop like I do. If you’re interested in making some more complex varieties of homemade confetti, check out this post.
