These are pretty simple to make – you can get as creative as you want.  My niece used her Mom’s Cricut cutter to make some of the more fancy designs but the simple ones turned out good too.

You will need various colors and designs of card stock paper and scrapbooking paper and glue (glue sticks work well).  Cut the rectangle from the heavier card stock – you can use two different colors, one smaller than the other to make a different color border.  Then decorate (using the glue stick) with whatever designs you come up with.  We made some for boys and some for girls.  You could do animals, flowers, letters or shapes.  Then you can add a message to the back.  You could also punch a hole in the tops and tie a thin ribbon to it.
