Easy and Cheap DIY Birthday Party Favors!

When planning my daughter’s 4th birthday party last year, I was thinking of what kinds of awesome and easy DIY Birthday Party Favors I could make that would actually be used and played with.

From Ingenue to MomBod...
My name is Yvonne de Salle, and I’m a singer-actor on a selective hiatus.
