Hi friends! It’s Wendy Sue with you again today – I know Christmas is barely over, but there are only a couple of days before we get to celebrate New Year’s! Do you do anything special to celebrate with your family or friends? We’re pretty low-key around here, but as the kids have gotten older, we like to stay up and watch the ball drop on TV. Occasionally we’ll pick up a few fireworks to set off outside. But mostly we’re pretty quiet. I thought it would be fun this year to put together a little gift for each family member for New Year’s Eve. Here’s what I came up with:
The pillow boxes are quick and easy to put together with the help of this handy-dandy pillow box punch board!
I embellished the outside with a strip of paper with thickers for the year,
and a beautiful snowflake/rosette embellishment:
Inside each pillow box I’ve added a fun little tube of confetti! (which will, of course, be thrown OUTSIDE at the stroke of midnight!) It was quick and easy to make the confetti tubes to coordinate with the gift box.
This new confetti punch makes it super simple to punch a bunch of different sized circles at the same time.
I added a few sequins for fun.
Then I just wrapped a strip of paper, and tied some string, around these little plastic treat tubes.
In addition to the confetti, I added some glow sticks, candies, etc. to make the evening special!
After the pillow boxes were filled and ready to give, I sealed up the ends with washi tape:
However you choose to celebrate, I wish you a very Happy New Year!!
