Bon Bon Bag
This fun design features ties that pull together at the sides to form the shape
of the bag, just like a bon bon! You have the option of tying knots at the side
for a casual style or bows for a super cute look. The bag also features stylish
handles and a very easy to apply zipper to keep your belongings safe.
