a confetti decorated package is my fave

April 15, 2014

package decorated with confetti

Last week I was sending a birthday present to my sister and decided the package needed a face lift to:
A. distract from the fact that it was late
B. make the present seem more exciting
C. make the postman smile

This is what I pulled together in a few minutes.

All I did was take a piece of contact paper, cut it to fit the top of the box, poured some confetti on the sticky side (pressing it down a bit and leaving a thin border around the edge), then stuck it to the box lid.

I secured everything with packaging tape and added a label to send. Party box!

And for a little added surprise, I spelled out a little message on the inside of the lid with these stickers. I didn’t even include a note, I knew she would know it was from me.

    It was perfect! I loved it. And not only did it make the mailman smile, he put it in my neighbor’s mailbox and so she brought it to me and thought it was adorable.

    Does anyone know where the confetti comes from? I want this exact confetti if possible. If someone knows WHERE they got the confetti from that would be most helpful!

Who doesn’t love getting something that isn’t junk mail or a bill?
