How To Make Your Own Party Bag

“As much as we love parties, we cannot deny the fact that there are really expenses associated with it. This is the reason why we, parents must be creative and think of ways to lessen our expenses without sacrificing the fun in organizing it.

So, here’s the making of my own party bags.

What you need:
1) Construction paper (weight preferably 160g/qm or so). You won’t want your bags to end up as stiff as cardboard or as flimsy as cling wrap.
