1. Blue package, with decorative ribbon: Wrap package in blue paper. Wrap package with white wire-edge ribbon and tie into a fluffy bow: form first 2 loops as if you were tying a shoe, then make more loops before tying them all together. Attach Star-of-David confetti to the bow with dots of hot glue.
2. White package, with Star of David: To make the standing star, brush clear-drying glue on a blue plastic star and sprinkle it with silver glitter. Let glue dry. Glue the star to a bow made from white wire-edge ribbon. Wrap package in white paper. Crisscross silver cording around package. Hot-glue bow to top of package.
3. Clear cellophane bag: Drop a handful of the confetti stars into a clear cellophane bag with a pretty, seasonal gift -- such as menorah candles -- and tie the bag closed with silver cording.
