The Colorful Bows Visa Gift Card reflects the current state of gift wrapping that began ages ago in Asia, when gifts were wrapped in decorative cloth. Wealthy Victorians used decorated papers, ribbons and lace, while those of lesser means used plain brown paper. In the early 20th century colored tissue papers were popular, but when a Kansas City stationery store ran out of it during at Christmastime 1917 they substituted some fancy French paper used to line envelops. They sold out immediately, ushering in the use of colorful wrapping paper for the masses. Now we have the added convenience of machine-made bows to save us the time of making them by hand.
