I’ve been so excited to try LCI’s new MirriSPARKLE paper! If you can believe it, it looks even better in person than in pictures! As you know, I LOVE glitter and adding a special touch to my designs, so I was thrilled to experiment with the beautiful paper. It looks just like it’s covered in glitter, but there’s no glitter shedding! It has a perfectly smooth finish, which allows for so many fun DIY projects without having to clean up any bits of glitter once you’re done creating!

I decided to make these adorable paper bows with the MirriSPARKLE paper, and cut out my own DIY confetti to decorate the perfect table scape for a party. I used a hole puncher to make the confetti, and also used the paper to embellish my Risa Art Print, shown here.
