Take a look at this....

I Love, Love, Love...BoBunny!

The new paper collections and embellies are fabulous! What really tickled me was this new product---You Stasher's will appreciate this!---They are going to sell their clam shell packaging and they are calling them Clear Party Favors! For those of you who have come to Stasher's in the past, you will remember all of the cute treats we have made out of our recycled packaging! Now you will be able to purchase them for less than $1 a piece!

These will make great party favors, halloween treats, stocking stuffers, etc.
I am SO excited to see these goodies hit the market!
