DIY PARTY HEAD CONFETTI | Painting Party Post 03

Today I'm making head confetti for my daughter's color/painting birthday party. It's quite the tedious project I've got  on my hands, but the end results will totally make up for it. In all, it's taking me about 2 hours to complete this project. If only my kids weren't at school learning, they could be on hat-and-head-cutout-duty! If you're crazy enough to take 2 hours to make confetti like me, here's how to do it! 

Steps
Fun digital photos of your family members (and pets)
Printed 8x10 confetti template (Download my free 8x10 template HERE)
1/2" round paper cutter (or scissors)
Scissors
Scraps of colorful card stock
Hot Glue Gun

Now I'm having to fight the urge to place tiny "pom-pom's" at the top of the party hats. AHHH, being detail oriented is not all that it's cracked up to be! xo

Using the Photoshop template I've provided, place one photo over each shape. Use the clipping mask tool to make the head your confetti piece. Repeat until all of the shapes are filled with a photo.

Now collapse the row, right click on it and select "Duplicate Group." It will ask you to name it, I suggest naming the next group "Row 2."

Continue duplicating your groups until you have filled your page. Then flatten, save as a jpg, and send to your local photo lab to print as a standard 8x10 photo.

When your print is ready, cut out the circles using your 1/2" round cutting tool or scissors. Then make triangles out of your card stock scrap paper for the party hats. Place a very thin row of hot glue at the top of your head and attach the party hat to it.
