Confetti (and money) Shooter

Wow, it’s been a long time since I posted. How time flies!

For Zach’s birthday, I wanted something fun and celebratory, since his birthday is so close to the first of the year, and he's our only January baby...and a pretty darned cute and grown up one! I think this packaging fit the bill (we always give money) nicely…pun intended!

As you can see from the photos, a large, trimmed balloon secured to a toilet paper roll shoots the gift and confetti out nicely…as long as you don’t tie the tulle too tightly. Imagine the possibilities!

Thank you for sharing this great project. I'm making them as "class favors" for my customers who sign up for my Balloon Adventures project class. This will go perfectly with the theme. Thank you! Thank you!

That's a wonderful craft! I think I will modify it to create Christmas Crackers for my family here in New Zealand.

Is there any way to get more detailed instructions for the popper?
