Cut the paper into strips, then cut it into smaller pieces.

If you use thin paper such as a tissue wrapper or crepe paper, stack it together to make several layers. A thicker layer will make it easier to punch it.

How Long Does Homemade Confetti Last
The paper and natural confetti will last a very long time.
Paper confetti will last forever if you keep it in a dry storage box. The natural confetti made of leaves and dried flower petals will last four to a year with proper storage.
Keep the natural confetti in a plastic airtight container and put it in a cool, dry place like a drawer.
