How can people sell straws?

...This whole thread makes me ask why don't the sellers just list the items as' handmade' cupcake topper kits, and make the pdf 'topper' the hero of the listing rather than the straws. In other words, sell the pdf (which is perfectly within the rules) and make the straws the 'give away' item. That would make sense, wouldn't it?


~~~A few pages back someone said that is how many of the listings manage to stay, but I agree with SodaRenee that t it makes it look like the straws are handmade.
Can you sell dolls - produced in a factory - or any other mass produced toy...so long as you call it a "cake topper"? Just curious. Still trying to figure out all the rules.

Another thread about paper straws. I guess sending a PDF file along with a "use as is" supply totally counts as hand assembled. Good to know...for those looking to sell chains and blank shirts...
