It is a staple in any craft room, if you ask me! That's how you can create pretty confetti bowls like this and still wash them.

Tell Love And Party used tissue paper to punch out confetti of different sizes, then used the decoupage glue to seal them to the bowls.

There are a reason mice are scared of them, and I am too!

But, by cutting off the mechanism that traps the mice and giving it a coat of paint, they're actually kind of useful.

The Glitzy Pear used the painted traps to hold prints on a board!
