Paper Shaker – have you seen them?

I was introduced to PaperShaker over the summer when a friend used them for Wedding Thank you’s – and totally fell in love. I keep meaning to write about them. On the whole, I’m not a big fan of personalised cards. they always seem…. cheap. D’you know what i mean? Quickly banged out designs, on not-very-good cardstock.
