Hallmark gift wrap, ca. 1961

One of my finds this summer at Unshredded Nostalgia in Barnegat, NJ. The owner bought a huge trove from a paper doll collector. I'm not sure who that was, other than someone who lived in South Jersey. 

There was a note, dated 1988, inscribed on the cardboard behind the gift wrap:

"Gift wrap -- given by Suzanne Jaggers. This paper was the gift wrap on a birthday gift to Donna Jaggers, Suzanne's daughter. It was approximately 27 years ago (1961)."

The note was signed by Pat Batchelder.

  1. Had (and probably still have!) a version of this by Hallmark - 'cept in my version the doll was the gift card - dark-haired, as I recall, but otherwise the twin!
