I鈥檇 like to think our forefathers fought for the freedom to toss confetti into the air without being publicly tarred and feathered. This is also why I鈥檓 not a history teacher. Friends that know me best know that, while I have an aversion to most things colorful and shiny, I can鈥檛 resist a good confetti mix. Like a cat to a laser beam, my eye catches that glint of glitter and it鈥檚 all over. So I鈥檝e decided to channel my passion into showing you how to make some DIY confetti poppers for your Fourth of July shindig. If you鈥檝e been saving that confetti from New Year鈥檚, this project is perfect for you ;)

We used a gold paint pen to write a fun Fourth of July message. Make sure you allow the paint to dry completely before handling.

Trim the origami paper into half inch pieces. We used a mix of metallics and prints to create some enviable confetti.
