Go here and save youself a LOT OF HEADACHE. I tried building them myself and after hundreds of dollars wasted, a magician friend hooked me up with these people: http://www.aerotechnic.com/cannon.htm
I have the pocket cannon mounted in one of my props and it works fantastic EVERYTIME! The investment is worth every penny and you will no longer have failures!

About building a small confetti cannon....SOOOOO simple. Take a thumb tip, preferrably one of the harder rubber or metal ones, drill a small hole in the very tip, about 1/16" in diameter. With non-sweaty hands, take a small amount of flash cotton and roll it into a string, small enough to stick into the hole. This is your fuse. Thread the "fuse" into the hole so that about a 1/4" - 1/2" is exposed. Now place a small amount of flash cotton or fast flashpaper into the TT. Add some mylar confetti(dollar store sells it), and you can even add a small silk streamer. The streamer will serve as wadding to keep the confetti and propellant from falling out. With the TT in finger palm position, open end UP and fused tip end down, apply fire.........POP....sparkle........ooooo's and aaaaahhh's. Make sure to aim it away from your face!!!!!!! The amount of propellant, i.e. flash cotton or paper, can be experimented with. This is a great, nearly impromptu item. Don't carry this into an airport...could mean trouble :-O

Buy a cannon they are cheap and very safe. Think of the loss of life or limb!

I have a home-made confetti cannon design on my home page. It is a very simple home page, but the info is there.
