Happy Tuesday! Are you ready to get your craft on and make some festive decorations for Christmas! I am back with another project - how to make a simple Christmas bon-bons. As you might know, traditionally they are adorable Christmas party additions, attractively wrapped and filled with treats. When the right time comes, they are being pulled open and make everyone smile :) In fact they might be used for other purposes. For example to wrap small gifts, as a pretty table decoration or confetti poppers at the New Years Eve party. Pretty, right? So let's get wrapping!
You will need:
-a cardboard tube
-white A4 paper
-color pigment (dye or food colorant)
How to do it?Step 1 Place your white paper in a glass filled with mixed water and colorant.
For vivid color result keep it inside for about 20 minutes, for light color - 10 minutes.
Step 2 Let it dry for about two hours.
Step 3 Wrap the colored paper around the cardboard tube, bunch up the paper at one end and tie with a string.
Step 4 Fill the bon bons with whatever you like from the open end - sweets, confetti, written notes and tie it with the string.
Step 5 Decorate! I wanted to keep my bon bons simple, which is why I only glued a cut out circles of the same color on top of them.
Do you have any festive decorations planned yet?
