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)???

gift jar

Happy Monday!!!

Supplies used (PTI unless noted): Fresh Alphabet stamp set; Taken with Teal (SU!)/White cardstock; Black Palette ink; Certatinly Celery Grosgrain Ribbon (SU!); Holiday Vintage Button; Twine; Square/Square Scallop Nestabilities

You are absolutely right!!! 50 is NOT old, especially when you are 51:) Cute idea!!

So cute! I LOVE this packaging. I was just at IKEA and contemplated getting these but didn't have time to actually purchase anything - I'll have to go back and get them!

What a great gift idea Gretchen! I have often looked at these jars and wondered what I could use them for, now I know and so I have an excuse to purchase them :)
