How can I use happy birthday confetti without making a mess?

Using Happy Birthday Confetti Without Making a Mess

Happy birthday confetti is a lot of fun, but it can also be a big hassle to clean up. Luckily, there are a few ways to enjoy confetti without having to spend three or four hours picking it up off the floor. To use these cheerful little bits without making a huge mess, you should:

  • Consider creating a shaker card to hold the confetti pieces. A shaker card is a card that has a piece of plastic glued to a piece of foamboard with the center cut out. Confetti is put into the center hole and then the whole thing is glued to a blank greeting card.
  • Place a warning on the outside of any envelope or package that has confetti in it that tells the recipient to spread a piece of newspaper on the table before opening the card or gift. This way, the confetti will fall from the package onto the newspaper. Clean up is as simple as gathering the sheet of newspaper at the edges and carrying it to the trash can, where the confetti can be poured in.
  • Glue happy birthday confetti all over the front of a piece of cardstock that is folded in half to make a colorful birthday greeting card.
