  • You will need:
  • Balloons
  • some colourful wrapping paper
  • String

Stick stickers on your balloons to shuzz them up! Polka-dots are cute! You can also make letters with the stickers to spell out any word, I’m writing PARTY!

 

Easy bunting:

Stick stickers to a piece of string by fold them in half to create cute little bunting flags, or stick them to each other to create circular patterns. So simple. So effective people.

DIY Cups!

Decorate glass jars with stickers to use as cups! You can also create name tags by sticking little flags onto paper straws. It’s so cute! Your guests will know where to sit and you won’t lose your drink.
