    Write Christmas sayings on the paper with your markers and decorate the outsides of the paper with polka-dots, stripes, curly-q's, etc. If you have no idea what to write, usually song lyrics work well! My favorites are Jingle Bells, Merry Christmas Beautiful, and Santa Baby, won't you hurry down the chimney tonight? If you need even more ideas, listen to your local Christmas radio station.
