Why not make this fun 8 point star as a different type of birthday card for the kids?
Put a square or circle of matching card stock onto the back, and write your message there. Attach some ribbon to one point of the star (don't look for this in the photo - haven't done it yet...LOL!) and tie onto the gift.
This is a great way to make use of all that left over DSP - you need 8x 3 inch squares, that you fold into a kite.
