New Years Eve Poppers

I can't believe this year is almost over!  It has been such a great one for my family and me with our new little addtion!

Now to the crafts! I hope you kept those left over wrapping paper rolls like I mentioned before!  (You could also use toilet paper rolls if you have those handy.)  So, as you can see here, I made some homemade poppers for New Years Eve.  All you need are some rolls, tissue paper, candy or confetti, twine, paper and embellishments!

I started out by cutting the rolls to the size I wanted them to be, they can be as long or as short as you want them.  Next, fill them with candy and/or confetti, roll them up in the tissue paper, and tie off the ends with some WeR Glitter Sew Easy Glitter Floss.

Now for the fun part...decorating!  For this project I chose the Authentique Peaceful paper line.  I just love the old fashioned look of it, and the golds in it are perfect for New Years Eve.  I also used Doodle Bugs Glitter paper – you can never have enough glitter when it comes to New Years!  For some embellishments, I used Martha Stewart's Layered Doilies, Teresa Collins Everyday Moments Trinkets, and made some of my own Rosettes with our Epic Tool.

Helpful hint: If you are using glitter paper to wrap around you will probably need to use some tacky glue to keep it together.  After putting on tacky glue cut another roll and put it around it and secure it with a rubber band to dry!

You could also use these cute poppers just as decoration to use year after year, because they are just so pretty! I've also made a cute popcorn style box for a treat/candy box. I used the Epic Tool again to make some Mini Popcorn Boxes and put all sorts of candy in them to munch on all night. 

I hope you enjoy making this project as much as I did and I hope everyone has the best of New Years!! See you NEXT YEAR!

Happy Crafting!
