  • if they are the round ones, they make cute people. You can makes little dresses and hats for the. Since they have a little ball on top it looks like a head already. My kids and I made a bunch of pilgrims with them last Thanksgiving. They came out really cute!

  • If they are the flat clip kind, you can paint them pretty and put a magnet on the back for a fridge art work (or other paperwork) holder.

  • I've seen angels and american flags. People actually sell them in the tourist town I live near. Do a web search for designs.
