Help Me ID These Insects

While camping in the Whites last weekend I found these two fairly unusual insects. Both of them had created little casings for themselves from dirt and fine gravel (I assume the insects created them themselves). So far I have had no luck IDing them. The only information I can find on any insect that does this is the caddisfly larva which is aquatic and much larger than these. My finger is in the first photo for size reference and the second shouldn't be too hard to tell either, the leaf I think was a birch or beech and is about 4-5 inches long. Any information leading to the identification of these insects will be rewarded with extreme gratitude. Check them out in the web album!
