Comment: Thanks so much for the pl! Im only giving you a 5 as the shaker busted open. I'd suggest using something stronger than scotch tape to seal. But it is super cute and I love what you did with the items I sent you and thank you for the extra goodies from your stash. I hope you are feeling better!!
