Two new exciting things! Yes, not one but 2!
A Crankbunny pop up card now includes a FREE really nifty cardstock stand that folds out easily. This will allow you (or a special person) a way to enjoy the card more than just opening it the first time.
This stand keeps the pop up card open so you share it with others as decoration in your home, office or neighboring elk lodge. Also, if the card happens to be a gift - the stand is just an added special throughtful detail. Bonus Round!
Free card stands start getting included in orders starting August 25th 2015.
(A few pop up cards do not need / will not include a free stand. These cards are : Peacocky card, Let Them Eat Cake card, French Bulldog & Boston Terrier Pushing Up Daisies card, Lucky 7 Ball card, Jane Austen card, Goofy Dog card)
Kaboom! Newly designed paper puppet toy display stands are now available & shipping. These new stands ship flat and have more stability (ceiling fan approved**).

Display stand has two size options: "Tall" and "Short".
Display stand comes in three colors: Gold, White, Brown.
Ships flat for easy shipping. Assembly is easy and instructions are included with stand.
The paper puppet stands are a great alternative to hanging or framing all the Crankbunny paper dolls / paper toys. Display and pose the paper doll in mid-air instead of being set flat on a surface.
