Tie it up in ribbons and bows

December 16, 2007|By JULIE E. GREENE

The stick-on bow is sooooo easy.

But there are many simple ways to add flair to a holiday package with unusually shaped boxes, basic craft supplies or simply what's around the house, said Lisa Bartell, co-owner of Wisteria Cove, a Hagerstown store selling gifts and chocolates.

If people are looking to save money, they can reuse what they have to embellish a package, said Kathy Seburn, Bartell's sister and co-owner of Wisteria Cove.

One way is to cut images out of used gift wrap that is in good shape or use a design from a gift card or bag and glue it on a holiday package, Bartell said.

Many of the embellishments pictured are available at Wisteria Cove, 724 Potomac Ave. in Hagerstown. Similar materials can be found at area craft stores.
