Confetti

A while back I found a cool idea for gift wrapping via one of Juliette's pins.  When I saw all that confetti I knew I had found the perfect wrapping idea for my best friend's birthday present (we use to hide confetti in each others gifts).  This was the year to reinstate the tradition or at least allude to it.

.
Packing paper, double sided tape, hole-punch art paper, sprinkle confetti.  Done.  Wait, forgot one thing.  Vacuum. :)

  11. Excellent! A great idea. Every time I empty the hole punch I wish there was a way to use all those neat little dots and now there is.

  20. This is probably a dumb question, but where can you buy packing paper?

  21. @Kayla - If I remember correctly, you might want to try the aisle where tape is sold at a Target or Staples. 3M sells it under the name Postal Wrapping Paper.
