Little Boxes For Your Sock-es {fool proof gift wrapping}

I love containers. Almost as much as I love a half price sale.

My friend Amanda goes cookoo for anything animal print. 
She's also obsessed with kitties, and is a sucker for a good mustache motiff.
 Since it was her berfday, I was on a mission to bring it all together.

For under $10.

This 4 pair of happiness was only a few bucks at Kohls,

and once they were separated, they rolled up in a pretty little row.

I added a cat silhouette snipped out of a sliver of old scrapbook paper using this technique,
and a sprinkling of raffia. The final bill for everything: $1.73 under budget.

Meow.

  9. That photo is from Hobby Lobby, but they've got similar containers at Michaels, as well as places like Marshalls, TJMaxx, Ross, etc. Keep your eyes open...

  10. I only just discovered your blog a few days ago via pinterest but have spent many hours going through all of your posts. Your eye for detail and crafty projects are amazing.

    I was wondering if you could help me come up with a gift idea for our mail lady? I know nothing about her but she is a fab mail lady and goes way out of her way for everyone but I am incredibly stuck!

    She is probably late 40's early 50's and has a number of tattoos and looks hippyish/ cool.

    You seem to have a knack for making inexpensive items look a million dollars! Any ideas or even just to say get lost would be appreciated! haha
