Attractive Gifts . '

By NANCY VERMULLEN
Much of the appeal of Christ-
mas gifts lies In their gay and
colorful wrappings.
In addition to fancy gift papers
you can buy, you can use ordinary
papers and dress them up. Plain
white shelf paper trimmed with
narrow .ribbons and gold seals
makes an attractive gift, and so
'does brow~n w ra p p ing paper
sprayed with copper paint and
trimmed with colored twine and
stars.
Leftover scraps of fabric and
wallpaper offer still other sources
for distinctive covers. Even last
year's Christmas cards can be
used to. advantage. You can cut
Dut pictures and give them a three
imensional look by .attaching
them to the package with a tiny
piece of cotton or sponge.
The dime store is a wonderland
for creative gift-givers. The next,
time you're shopping, browse
around for artificial flowers, fruit
clusters and jewels, in addition to
the traditional stars, seals, holly
and Santas.
AX Santa Claus package is a de-
lght for youngsters, and can easi-
ly be fashioned of folding paper
balls and bells. Tube-shaped gifts
