RE: The tariff classification of a Craftime "Fan Fans" set from China.

Dear Mr. Kamnitz:

In your letter of May 10, 1990, you requested a tariff classification ruling on a Craftime No. 9102 "Fan Fans" crafts set from China.

The sample submitted is a crafts set containing four 5" x 8" sheets of printed paper, eight plastic imitation gemstones (4 round; 4 pear-shaped), two pairs of base metal flat back clip-on earrings, one base metal jewelry bar-pin, one base metal barrette and a tube of non-toxic glue glaze. The foreign cost, including retail packaging and amortization of start-up costs, is 97 cents per set.

Instructions included with the set show a child how to make earrings, a brooch or a hair clip, crafted either with small squares or rectangles of blue patterned paper or pink paper cut from the 5" x 8" sheets. The paper is folded accordion style to resemble a fan, hence the name "Fan Fans". The folded paper fans are glued to the metal findings and the imitation gemstones are glued to the center of the paper thereby creating very ornamental folded paper jewelry articles.

The applicable subheading for the "Fan Fans" folded paper jewelry crafts set will be 7117.90.5000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for imitation jewelry : other: other: valued over 20 cents per dozen pieces or parts. The rate of duty will be 11% ad valorem.

The sample is being returned to you.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
