New Year’s Eve Party Decor

Hello, We R friends! Tessa Buys here. I love setting up decorations for New Year’s Eve, and while the store-bought things are just fine, making my own is much more fun. This year, I was inspired by the “Kiss Kiss” paper from the Urban Chic collection to create a “kiss me at midnight” display:

Using the DIY Party Rosette Punch, I made several rosettes from Urban Chic patterned papers, We R Memory Keepers cardstock, and Bazzill cardstock and foil papers.

To make the rosettes you see here, you will need two sheets of each paper. Cut each 12×12 sheet in half (6” x 12”). Score three halves at 0.5” increments and use the rosette punch to add the detailed edge. Fold and attach the three 6” x 12” pieces together to form the rosette. For the smaller rosettes, cut the last 6” x 12” piece in half again (3” x 12”). Score the two pieces at 0.5” intervals, use the rosette punch to create the decorative edge, then secure together to form a rosette. I added a silver foil cardstock circle to the center of each rosette for some extra shine.

I couldn’t stop at the rosettes, so I made banners, too! For the “kiss me at midnight” banners, I used a piece of Bazzill pink foil cardstock and the Mini Alphabet Punch Board. I punched each letter according to the directions, and added the decorative notches with the punch board. I used my Crop-a-dile to punch two holes in each letter and strung the letters on silver ribbon.

To make the “2017” banner, I used the regular sized Alphabet Punch Board to punch the numbers from plain, white cardstock. Next, I used the DIY Party Confetti Punch to punch a lot of confetti from the silver foil cardstock that I used earlier. I covered the “2” and “1” with adhesive and placed one little piece of confetti at a time. It took a while, but the mirror ball-like effect was definitely worth it! I used DIY Party fringe tape in silver to cover the “0” and the “7”.
