quick gift packaging

Hi all,
Another weekend behind us *sad face* I thought mine would be pretty uneventful, but this is what Josh brought home on Friday...Let me just say...I am not a dog person (pretty much like Lucy on Charlie Brown~DOG GERMS!). I have stuck my ground for years~NO DOGS!!! Well Josh brought this little guy home on Friday, apparently someone abandoned him where Josh works. He stayed the night on Friday, and he was really a great puppy...I told Josh we could give him a trial far so good. I still cannot believe I said ok! His name is Codie and he is starting to grow on me *wink*

I wanted to share this cute and easy packaging idea...I am always on the lookout for containers and stuff to package gifts in (I have tons of stuff on hand, LOL!! I do have a craft hoarding problem). I found these containers at IKEA really cheap. I added some pretty shredded paper some Godiva chocolates and a few giftcards and viola! I think it came out pretty cute...can you guess how old the recipient was (which is NOT old if you happen to read this)???

Happy Monday!!!
