Haberdashery items

Hi everyone!
I've managed to move to Arizona, yay! I could pack only a few craft tools, so I think I'll have to go on a trip to Michael's (as soon as I find a car that I can use).
I wanted to have a giveaway once reaching 100 followers; well, I've got 104 up to now, so it definitely is time to thank each and every one of you for reading my blog (it's amazing to see that there are people out there interested in what I do!), and for leaving such nice comments every time.
Due to the fact that I was moving to the States I haven't been able to craft any miniature for my giveaway. But please stay tuned as I'll write a post for my give away pretty soon :)
In the meantime I thought you might enjoy seeing these things I made for the haberdashery. I have been wanting to make them for ages, but I couldn't find the right cardboard...too thin, too thick, or not the right color. Then one day I ordered a book from Amazon, and it came in exactly the kind of cardboard I was looking for!!!!! But I didn't realize it straight away. As a matter of fact I threw away in the paper recycling bin this Amazon box; and after a few days, while I was still thinking how to solve the cardboard problem, I remembered about that wrapping....and went digging in the recycling bin ;)
End of a fairy tale (well, kind of!).
