RE: The tariff classification of five retail packages containing three-dimensional stick-ons identified as “DOO-DADS™”, for scrapbooking and papercrafting, from China.

Dear Mr. Hogoboom:

In your letter dated August 13, 2002, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Five representative samples were identified as styles 14756, 17662, 17670, 17685 and 17638, all in retail packaging. All of these flower items contain an adhesive on the back to facilitate their use as a scrapbook accessory.

The first item, 14756, consists of three rectangular, nonwoven textile felt stick-ons containing embellishments such as copper wire, wooden beads, stars, and, in once case, a corrugated paper backing.

The second item, 17662, consists of three paper pastel colored flowers containing a metal center and a grouping of four smaller paper flowers affixed to a metal wire.

The third item, Item 17670 “Bright Gingham Buttons” consists of 18 decorative plastic buttons.

The fourth item, 17685, “Bright Butterfly”, consists of two butterfly shapes, two square shapes and two round shapes made of ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) plastic foam. The butterfly shapes are made with one layer of foam forming the wings and a second layer of shaped foam applied on top of the wings to form the head and body. Circles cut from foam are glued onto the wings as ornamentation. The antennae are formed from silver colored wire. The surfaces of the circle and square shapes are decorated with curved and shaped silver wire ornamentation. Because of the multiple layers of foam and the silver wire ornamentation, these stickers are not flat.

The fifth and final item, 17638, consists of a retail package containing three heart-shaped designs of nonwoven felt construction (polyester); one is rectangular with four plastic buttons and and a heart-shaped object stitched on its face.
