The internet is overflowing with amazing ideas for wedding-related crafting projects. Recently I was thinking about how it would be fun to put confetti into our Shoppe’s glassine envelopes as an interactive party favor. Out of curiosity, I did some research online and discovered that there are a number of great ideas on wedding blogs and websites of a similar nature. For this project, I thought I would put my own spin on this envelope idea by doing a little stamping and sewing on the confetti packs!
I created two different styles of envelopes using decorative paper tapes in soft and pretty spring colors. You can customize these to match the colors of your wedding or theme with the large variety of paper tapes that we have available. If you are in need of a more specific color or design, you may alternatively use patterned paper. I recommend using the 4x4" glassine envelopes for holding the confetti. The idea is that the wedding guests can tear off the top of the pack at the wedding to commence the festivities with good old-fashioned confetti throwing!
For the first set of confetti packs, I stamped various designs from the Crescendoh Doohdles Clearly Impressed stamp line. The designs from this stamp set are great for weddings because they include the decorative cake images, hearts, and words that are perfect sentiments for these occasions. Stamp the designs on the glassine sleeves with StazOn ink. It is really important to use this type of ink because glassine envelopes have a slick surface, making it difficult for most images to adhere. I used the patterned Aqua Paper Tape and attached it the top of the envelope (front and back). Next, I stitched a simple straight stitch through the tape with brown thread for a decorative touch. For the second set of confetti packs, I decided to use the flourish image from the Patterned Flourishes Clearly Impressed stamp line. This stamp image is elegant with just the right touch of sophistication, which makes it perfectly suited for a wedding. The paper tape I employed comes from the Venice Naked Paper Tape set. I used the same StazOn Ink that I used with the aqua-colored set in my first example.
