L.A. Gift Wrapping Expert Linda Summerlin A Finalist In Scotch Brand Most Gifted Wrapper Contest
Celebrity Wrap owner, author, and gift wrapping expert Linda Summerlin has been chosen as one of eight finalists in the 13th annual Scotch Brand Most Gifted Wrapper Contest being held in New York City's Rockefeller Center on December 4, 2009.
Miss Summerlin has wrapped thousands of gifts in the ten years she has offered her services, but this is one challenge that makes her nervous. " I've seen the cooking, designing, and other contests on TV, and they are brutal. However, just to be a finalist and share my own style of wrapping with the public is the most thrilling event of my career as a wrapper!"
Linda began wrapping as a small child, at one time attempting to wrap her grandfather's lit pipe! Fortunately Grandma saw what was happening and emptied the pipe just in time.
Affectionately known as Queen Wrappa, Linda emphasizes the importance of customizing the wrapping to the gift recipient, whether it's a favorite color, a sport, or other element of the recipient's personality. She encourages her students to "think outside the bow", and use different elements to personalize packages, including battery operated lights!
Miss Summerlin is the author and video host of "Let's Wrap! Spectacular Gift Wrapping Made Easy". The book and DVD are available on Amazon.com, Celebrity Wrap website, and other venues.
