Renaissance Wrapping

Although you're not supposed to judge a book by a cover, it's hard not to judge a present by its packaging. This year, retire the snowman paper, and transform your gift into a work of art with these stylish wrapping, topping and tagging ideas from style-setter, designer and best-selling author Carolyne Roehm.

Experiment by using different trimmings with the same paper. A nosegay of woodcut flowers and striped grosgrain suggests a feminine style.
