Never seen it but it’s a potentially great idea.  Can you do a trial run?  They probably need to be tossed earlier than other things since they take awhile to fall back down.

What an awesome idea!! We used to open them up & stick em on our noses like Pinnochio! I still can’t use it because our church doesn’t allow us to throw anything ;( but still… I LOVE this idea!

What I neat idea! I never thought of using those. But I’d be worried about storing them… wouldn’t all their little wings rip off easily?

I’m such a worrier… lol… obviously the people in the picture made it work, so it can be done!

I wish we could have done that :/ super cute idea. On my sons report card day last year I collected about 100 off the ground and tossed them up when he got off the bus.. It was so pretty and he loved it. He always tries to get good grades now so I’ll toss them again and again. 🙂

I remember these from my childhood but I can’t remember what the memory is from.  I remember throwing them and loving the way they fell.  Great idea
