confetti invitations

jordan ferney has completely blown my mind again with her creativity! this time, it was with her confetti invitations. i used this tutorial, and created these for kj’s upcoming birthday party…

we have been planning the party with the colors navy blue & turquoise, and stripes, and chevron-designs! kj was so excited to deliver these invites, he couldn’t wait for his friends to twist them open for the little tubes to shoot out the surprise invitation!

i started with these party poppers that jordan recommended-

they were so easy to take apart. we {meaning: kj happily helped, he kept telling me…”mom this is so much fun!”} removed the top circle/lid, carefully pulled out the original confetti, and peeled off the outside wrapper. all of this was easy-peasy.

the only thing i altered in comparison to jordan’s tutorial, is we did not disassemble the poppers. there was no need to, and all of the poppers we tested were a success! {kj loved testing them…!}

next, we filled the tubes with our color-themed confetti, but not very much because there was more to fit in there…

i cut 1-1/2″ circles for matted fronts, and the backs of the string-of-invitation-information…

i typed the information in word, and printed the info. on these labels. next, i cut them in to strips to make it easier to punch them out with a 1″ hole puncher. using this style of hole puncher made it possible to gauge where to cut the circles.

i applied the small information circles to one larger turquoise circle, this was quick because they are already sticky. then stuck them together with a dot of glue, with the string going between. then, i stacked up the invitation string, and tucked them into the tubes, seen here –

{come join the fun & gamers…}

almost finished…

i created new labels. before wrapping them on the tube, i cut 1-1/2″ circles for the tops of the tubes as a lid. i simply sat this on the tube, and held it in place while i wrapped on the new labels. i placed the labels with about 1/4″ hanging over the top to press down and hold the paper lid in place. it worked out so great!
