Here’s a quick tutorial on how to make confetti poppers without using any plastic or balloons. You can watch the video tutorial above to see how it works.

Materials you’ll need to make a confetti poppers:

  • Tissue Core or thin cardboard box
  • Tissue Paper or brown paper
  • Rubber Band or even elastic hair ties
  • Scrap papers for confetti and decorations
  • Glue
  • Scissors

STEP 1: Cut a Slit

Make a slit cut on the tissue core less than half way like in the photo, make sure the cut is parallel to each other.

STEP 2: Add the Rubber Band

Add the rubber band on the slit, this will push the confetti out of the tube when pulled out.

STEP 3: Cover and Fill in Confetti Poppers

Cover one end of the tissue core with tissue paper, then add the confetti inside before closing up the other end.

Tip: Don’t use confetti that are too big like the pink ones in the photo. I learned my lesson. Use a smaller pieces instead. Tiny squares or rounded cuts will do the trick.

STEP 4: Add a Pull Tab

Add a pull tab to one end, to do this cut a strip of paper and fold it in half. Place the tab on the rubber band and secure it in place by gluing the strip together.

That’s it! Now it’s ready to pop! To launch the confetti poppers first poke the top part and then aim vertical when you pull the tab for full effect, Keep pulling the tab until no more confetti is left. Enjoy.

Another great idea is to use the confetti itself to decorate the confetti poppers like on the photo.
