Greetings, Glitter Girls! It’s Katrina from Pugly Pixel. I’m happy to share an easy tutorial that will show you how to make your own confetti calling cards. Last year, my friend Margaret from Paper Pastries wrote a post about DIY Calling Cards made with a customizable stamp kit (you know — those stamp kits that are sold at office supply stores like Staples and Office Depot). Her cards turned out adorably, so I decided to follow suit and make my own using supplies I already had on hand: business card-sized glassine envelopes and colorful tissue paper.
Here’s how you can make your own:
1. Punch a bushel of tissue confetti.
2. Stamp your name and info on 2.25 x 3.5 inch glassine envelopes (you can buy them from Clear Bags). The ink takes a long time to dry. I’d recommend that you let them dry naturally overnight. Refrain from using a blowdryer, because the heat will add wrinkles to the envelopes.
3. After the ink dries, fill your envelopes with a pinch of confetti.
4. To secure the confetti, seal the envelopes with tiny gold stickers or glitter tape (stay tuned for the tutorial).
If want something a bit more “bling-y” than tissue paper, you can substitute sequins or glitter! Your custom-made calling cards will put a smile on the face of everyone lucky enough to receive one. Bling!
