Playing with confetti always makes me happy. This is a great idea to surprise someone with something small.Also can be used as a little thank you at a party or a wedding. I even use it to make a cloudy day fun at home. 

What you need:

 a few sheet of tissue paper
scissors or paper punch
confetti holder

# step 1:

Fold the tissue paper a few times, then cut out little circles. If you have a paper punch you can do the same.
Fold it as many times that the paper punch can handle and the start punching.

 # step 2:

Fill the confetti holder with confetti until it is full. Close it.
Now you are ready the use it yourself or give it to brighten someone’s day. Enjoy and have fun.

# step 2:

Before you start stitching make sure that the right side of the fabric is inside. Stitch all around, about 1 cm seam. Leave a opening of about 5 cm at the bottom.

# step 3:

Turn the cloud inside out. Fill the pillow with cloud pillow. Make sure to squeeze the filling into all the curves and corners. When you are happy with your pillow thickness, stitch the opening closed with thread and needle. Voila!

* Enjoy your little cloud pillow or go make someone’s day with a little surprise.
