How to make paper decorations

Waste

Some things simply cannot be reused, recycled or repurposed.
Before buying them think if you really need them? For example, do you really need to blow up a pack of balloons? Is there something else you could use that would be just as effective – e.g. paper decorations, bunting or bubbles?
