Turn Bargain Basics into Cheerful Party Supplies

Introduction

We love turning bargain basics and cheerful party supplies into fun decorations. The materials aren't hard to come by -- you'll find them at party stores, discount stores, and even office-supply stores. Here are some of our favorite sources.
