No package yet...those postal elves need to get it in gear.  Wink 
press those paper snowflakes in a book and they will straighten out for you. I use and x-acto for the names and scissors for the rest, laminating helps them last.
The felted snowflake ball is actually a pin cushion.
I think all the snow in your package made it snow here and delayed it getting out... Grin

I am so excited about the package I made too!  I hope it isn't lost and was just slightly delayed by the weather.  I sent 8 days ago too and was expecting my package to show up to my partner before I received mine!  OH the mail system!

Here is the wonderful stuff I got from strawberryh:

Look at all the goodies!!!  The can is on the left (yes it is a leather clutch!) a bag of bottle caps (didn't have any of these so cool beans ), corks, 2 stuffed dragons (one from Shrek), gold chocolate coins, butterfly ornament, a plastic gragon that looks like Mushu from Mulan, 2 suckers, some ducky bath safety treads (being regifted immediately to my Dad for X-mas), cool mushroom ornaments, 2 necklaces and 2 scrabble tile pendants...

Here's a closeup up of the can

The Dragons (trying to keep them away from my dogs)

Mushrooms ...still trying to figure out how they were made, They remind me of the Mario mushrooms!

Love these so much, they are gorgeous! going out to find chains for these right away

Thank you Strawberryh!

The mushrooms are made by using the Champagne corks and covering them with air dry clay on top. I just used white craft paint and red and white craft glitter paint. I did make the loops on top I made then it cork screw spiral in the wire, so that it couldn't just pull out. It is a variant of the champagne cork mushrooms on your wist
I couldn't decide were to put handles on the can the top or the sides?
Every treasure chest needs a key and gold coins. The lolly pops are maple. I am saving bunches of them for a farmville swap I keep planning on running.
The Neck laces are all variant's of things on your wist.
I tried to make the mother and daughter of the Korean necklace but I wasn't happy with how the one for mother came out. I drove all over and couldn't find a setting for it so I had to make it with wire. Ironically that was the hardest piece, Between making the paper and writing really small with out it feathering, and the wire setting.
I didn't have a wizard like on you wist but I did have dragons so you magic dust is dragon instead of wizard.
and I have lots of colbolt blue pieces in my bead box so I hoped it was still ok instead of the Jade green one on your wist.
You collect Dragons so I thought so little friends would be nice. If they do become dog toys Just remember to remove the eyes so the doggies don't swallow them.
