Confetti is small pieces or streamers of paper. It comes in many different colours and shapes and can be shiny or plain. Traditionally confetti is used to throw at people who are celebrating as a way of congratulations, it is particularly popular after a wedding ceremony to throw at the bride and groom. A recent innovation at weddings is to use natural petal confetti. These are made from freeze-dried flower petals and are completely biodegradable. Because of its versatility confetti paper is great to use in arts and crafts. You can find many different types of confetti paper if you go to digitalpapershop.com.
