I have branched out from my washi tape love into this super fun confetti tape! I fell in love with some but it had a $10 price tag for just a few short strips. {sad face} I knew I could DIY up some of my own and now I kind of can’t stop making it! Here’s what you need:

Supplies Needed for Confetti Tape:

  • Clear Poster Tape or Carpet Tape
  • Paper in your color choices
  • Hole Punch
  • Scissors
  • Paper plate or small tray to gather your confetti

DIY Confetti Tape

First things first…get punching!  Simple as that.  Pull up your favorite TV show or punch while your littles are playing at your feet, but get to punching some confetti!

Next gather your confetti on a paper plate or a small flat tray.  Cut a length of your tape and press the exposed sticky side onto your confetti.

Repeat until the entire tape is covered.

When you are ready to use it, simply peel off the paper backing of the tape and you are ready to stick. The tape is clear so you can apply to almost anything!

Tips:

  • Use Poster Tape or Carpet Tape because it is double sided tape that also has a paper backing.  So you can make your confetti tape ahead and then store it until needed!
  • When doing rainbow confetti tape, punch equal amounts of each color so that your rainbow is uniform and not one color dominated.
  • Use paper that is colored on both sides.  Believe me…you will NOT want to have to manually flip little pieces over because their white side is showing!
  • Tissue paper also works great!  When punching make sure to fold it over several times and punch all the layers at once!  It makes it easier to punch the flimsy material and also saves you time!

Uses:

What can’t you use this for should be the question!  :)  How about to add some life to a dull envelope?
