Begin to punch holes in the storybook pages.

As you make the confetti, place the confetti in your bag or plastic container for safe keeping.

Once you have made the confetti and cleaned up the work area, you can save the confetti for your upcoming party or holiday BBQ table. Please remember to recycle the unused paper material from the storybook.On the big day, you can sprinkle the confetti on the food table. You can even use the confetti to accompany an invitation for the big event!
