It's hard to believe these glitzy bangles began as humble paper-towel tubes. Prepare for the party by slicing the tubes into rings with a utility knife. Wait until kids are finished decorating with paper cutouts, feathers, and buttons before you snip the rings open for wearing -- gluing is easier when they're still intact.

A wristful of paper-and-metal key-tag charms makes its own music.
To make the bracelets, you will need key tags and stickers (available at office-supply stores), a chain bracelet and jump rings (available at jewelry-supply or crafts stores), and needle-nose pliers. Decorate the tags after removing the rings that come with them. If your decorations cover the holes on the tags, use a mini hole punch to repunch the holes. Using the pliers, open a jump ring, insert a tag, loop it to a link of the bracelet, then close the jump ring.

Christmas Card Necklace
Give old Christmas cards more hang time by cutting them out and stringing them together. They're shown in garland form here, but can easily be made into a necklace. Use craft punches (or trace a round object and cut out). Attach to heavy thread with stickers; rub with craft stick to secure.
