the things you find
So last week I cleared out a storage unit with my mom, and found a few of my things, including a bag of crochet cotton. I was unsurprised to find it; crochet cotton is wildly useful. (I've never actually crocheted with it. I don't know how, and have never really found it attractive anyway.)

I brought it home, and it sat in my truck until tonight, when I brought it in and took a better look through it. There's some iron-on twill tape, and some middy braid, and a hole punch and some scissors (MORE scissors)... and these:





They're tablet weaving cards I made... good lord, if they were in Mom's house it must be over 10 years ago, probably close to 15. Anyone want to guess what they're made out of?

To hazard a guess, those top ones look like cereal boxes.

Nope. Not even the same material. :-)

for some reason i'm wondering if the bottom set are old floppy drive protectors.

and crochet cotton IS wildly useful for a lot of things! is it the cotton yarn or the finer thread?

Nope. they're only about 2.5" square.

hmmm... The white ones are some type of plastic... I'd guess like 1/8" polyethylene. The brown ones look like the fiber board material that they use in speakers and such.

You, sir, have come the closest on the top one, but boloed the bottom ones. I will post in a moment with the answers.
