I made these back in the day with my kids!  Use cookie cutters to cut cardboard shapes (cereal boxes work well).  Give them glue & pompom (glitter, too!) and when they're finished add a look and/or ribbon and hang. Draw a design on brown paper bags and let your little one color it in - punch holes, put your gift inside, tie a bow and give!  So cute!
