How To Make Party Poppers!

I absolutely love party poppers! Who can resist the brightly colored confetti that spills out when you crack them open? And that loud crack is the best part; it surprises me every time, even when I’m expecting it!

So when I realized you can make your own party poppers, complete with cracker snaps (the things that make the loud bang when you pull them apart) I was SUPER excited! If you love party poppers too, check out this super simple video tutorial showing you exactly how to make them in under ten minutes!

They’re perfect for New Year’s, Christmas, Fourth Of July, birthday parties, graduation parties, or any fun celebration!

The coolest part about this project is that I teamed up with Take & Make to create a kit for these party poppers, which comes with all the materials you need to make eight confetti-filled party poppers! The kit even includes the cracker snaps, which is awesome, because I haven’t been able to find them at any craft stores near me!

Disclosure: I partnered with Take & Make for this project and was compensated by them in exchange for creating this craft kit. But this craft is super awesome and some of these materials are hard to find, so having the option to have the supplies shipped to you is a win for you! All opinions in this post are 100% my own; I would never write a post about something I didn’t think was useful or interesting for you guys, and Practically Functional will only publish sponsored posts for companies or products I love and believe in!
