You make them out of almost any kind of material you can dream up (fabric, ribbon, even paper), and for virtually any holiday or special occasion. They also make perfect gifts for not just Christmas, but for things like wedding and baby showers (personalize them with matching colors and materials), birthdays, and even sports teams. The possibilities are literally endless.
