 Cornelia's Candy Shoppe is full of sweet surprises! Cornelia's features a two-story

adorn as you'd like. Place Tea Lights inside and watch the magic come alive
when light appears thru all the windows adding a cozy warm glow to your
room. All chipboard and papers will be cut to  fit so no tracing and cutting are required.
