From Alisa Lewis Event Design: Many venues do not allow traditional confetti due to the fact that it’s very difficult to clean up and is not biodegradable. We’ve come up with a solution! This confetti is made out of hand-pressed seed paper and edible gold shimmer paint.

hand-pressed seed paper
Wilton (or any brand) edible gold glitter spray paint (available in cake section of craft store or any cake supply store)
hole punch (this heart hole punch is so cute!)
glassine treat bags or clear goodie bags
washi tape to seal

Spray the seed paper with the gold spray paint until you achieve the desired color.
This dries very fast. Then use hole punch to punch tiny holes out of the paper. This is your confetti. Alternatively, if you’re looking to pack a punch (pun intended) and create a large quantity of this biodegradable confetti, you can use a regular paper shredder that has a micro-shred type of cut such as this one.

  • I absolutely love this idea! Any thoughts on cost or quantity/guest? Is this an affordable alternative? How much confetti does one sheet of seed paper make? How much confetti does one guest need? I’m researching now, but just wanted to get your opinion. Thanks!

  • Wouldn’t spray painting the seed paper negate any benefit of its biodegradability? Spray paint isn’t excactly the most environmentally friendly of media. I’ve seen many a how-to post about making your own seed paper so maybe just dye the paper with food coloring when you make it to at least get a shade you like and then skip the spray painting step all together.

    She mentions in the materials that it is an edible gold glitter spray paint! 🙂
