Originality, Imagination May Be Displayed
In Decorating Yuletide Packages This Year

How To Tie a Basic Pom Pom Bow

Do your gifts have that personal
When Christmas rolls around and
presents are numerous, it's that
extra-special wrapping that gives
a gift the exciting, tantalizing
quality, and also reflects the giv-
er's taste and thoughtfulness, mak-
ing the simplest present something
The thought and sentiment that
go into giving some small item
at Christmas can be magnified by
putting care, time and effort into
the wrapping.
3-D Designs
One of the newest designs for
packages this season is the 3-D
feature. This can be accomplished
by extending painted cardboard
out from the box in the desired
shape. A dollhouse mantle with a
fire in the grate and wreath above
can make a cozy picture and pro-
vide a "stand-up" for any large

box. A' snowman perched atop a
gift or a window framed with cot-
ton in 3-D construction will also
carry out this new idea.
Glamorously feminine cotton kit-
tens with glistening pearl bead col-
lars attract little girls, and young
men will delight in sleighs, snow-
men and Santa himself on their
gifts. Rich wood grain paper high-
lighted with gold and bronze, or
bold strips, makes handsome mas-
culine packages.
For small boxes, miniature pat-
terns like tiny pipe cones or tree
balls are just right. Try adding a
touch of silver or gold sparkle to
each ornament for unbelievable
glitter and variety.
Jewelry Utilized .
Dip into a box of 'costume jewel-
ry for decorations and utilize the
discards. Nearly everyone has odd
pearls, broken bits of jewelry with
brightly colored stones or stray

earrings that can be effectively
used on big or little packages.
Don't be afraid to experiment,
say expert gift-wrappers. Among
working materials, try to include
tiny Christmas tree balls, a length
of tinsel, glass beads, gold and sil-
ver stars, cellophane tape -- plain
and with holiday designs -- short
lengths of left-over ribbon in var-
ious colors and widths, gift paper
and whatever else pleases your
Ever try stringing popcorn and
making holiday designs on dark
paper? Snow flakes, Christmas tree
balls or snowmen lend themselves
effectively to this edible decoration.
Edible Decor
For a novel food-wrap, use nuts
as pine cones, attach them with
ribbons and cluster them together
in the center of the package with
a huge bow.
Flat-wrapped gifts, topped with

striped paper and dark musical
notes or plain paper with wintery
figures, makes presents easy to
mail and yet still look festive and
Echo the spirit of Christmas with
nature's trim by using pussy wil-
lows. Snuggle them into a bow at
the corner of dark or small-pat-
terned paper for a really different
Speaking of bows, everything in
ribbons of all lengths, widths and
sizes is in order for this season's
gift-wrappers. Small bells or orna-
ments, together with various col-
ored sparkle-dust will brighten-up
any gift for a friend or relative.
When wrapping Christmas pack-
ages this year, make every one a
production! Remember Ithat the
simplest gift should be done with
care, for the wrapping expresses
the personal thought that lies be-
hind the gift.
