11 -Gift Guide. Thursday, Nov. 28. 1968 Holiday Wrappings Become Family Project I'rrsonalized gift wrappings under the Christmas tree delight both giver and receiver while adding a special festive touch on Christmas morning. Now any member of the family can transform a gift box into a very personal greeting. It takes only a colorful imagination and a supply of creative gift wrap materials. Kor special designer touches, assorted Christmas tree balls, candy, colored tissue paper, cookies, surgical cotton, construction paper, brightly colored wrapping paper, a rubber ball and even cigars add special zest and fun to wrapping nresents. Here are a few do-it-yourself gift wrapping ideas to delight members of the family and special friends: For Brother: Wrap gift in , solid-colored paper. Cut a triangle out of construction paper, bending it in the middle to shape a bird's beak. Use Christmas balls as eyes and make feathers by shredding Sasheen ribbons. For Friends: a gift of holiday spirits or wine can be transformed into one of the three Kings. Using heavy-duty solid-colored construction paper, wrap the bottle. Then form two rolled-up arms and Scotch tape to top of bottle. Trim sleeves, cuffs, and robe with Scotch gift tape. Make lis head by covering a rubber ball with a white napkin and glue it smoothly to the bottle's top. Make his nose by gluing peppermint candy to the center of the napkin-wrapped ball. Make eyes with one round and one half circular cut-out. A small regal headdress can be made with the same construction paper and trimmed with Scotch patterned gift tape. For Sister: Make a cat out of a gift box by wrapping the package in solid-colored paper, cutting out an oval face and two legs of construction paper, and tying with Sasheen ribbon. After gluing cat parts to box, shred ribbon to make whiskers and paste peppermint candy on face for eyes. A special cat's meow collar is designed with Christmas balls and Decorette ribbons. For Father: Wrap his gift with solid-colored paper, and trim the package in diagonal strips with Scotch gift tape. Top the present with an added surprise: a brandy-snifter filled with his favorite cigars and tied to the box with fancy Sasheen ribbon. For Baby Brother: Make a gift look like ole St. Nick. Wrap the package in checkboard paper. Cut St. Nick's face out of heavy-duty construction paper and paste it on the box. With more check-. board paper, fashion his hat and trim with Christmas balls. Adhere his hat with transparent tape. To make a beard and fluffy hair, cut triangles of surgical cotton and glue to cardboard face. For Mother: A personalized gift with her own initials. Wrap box, neatly closing with transparent tape. Then trim sides of box with Scotch gift tape. Using a solid-colored gift tape, initial the receiver's name directly on the box. Decorette ribbon and Christmas balls add the crowning touch to a very personal gift wrapping. 3 V I h4 u yrOUINTITY RIGHTS RESERKII THURS. - FRlN - SAT.
