Make a snowman out of clear buttons or beads. Then give him an outfit with a ribbon scarf, paper nose, and drawn-on top hat.
Glue patterned wrapping paper or scrapbooking paper on a gift tag. Wrap the tag with a plain band for writing the recipient's name. Then embellish it with miniature holly on a brad.

Press a rubber stamp on a glue pad and then to the tag. Sprinkle the glue with ultra-fine glitter, one color at a time. Use a glitter pen to dot similar circles and write a holiday message.
Brighten stamped greenery with marker-drawn berries. Dot the berries with a glue pen and dust with red glitter.
Layered with patterned papers, a mailing tag sings a new tune on this wrapped package. Use music-theme paper for the background and then decorate it with paper trees trimmed in buttons, glitter, and flower embellishments.
