This is a group of items for a “Harry Potter Birthday” celebration swap. Sort of a party-in-a-box kind of thing. I had a lot of fun coming up with a mix of items for a party and things that Harry would enjoy at one of his birthday parties. Click for larger pictures.
These are a few pages of a Hogwarts Passport I created for a swap years ago. The first half of the passport was to be made as though we were Hogwarts students (we had a list of pages we were required to create). The second half was about our place in the Harry Potter fandom. Here are a few of the pages from the first half. Click for larger images.
I’ve done a bunch of different House ATC swaps. During the last one, both of my partners were Hufflepuffs! So I chose a few pages from the copy of Chamber of Secrets I had on hand (a book that was falling apart that I’m re-purposing through crafts) that had particularly Hufflepuff passages. A little watercolor and a stamp I bought on Etsy later, and I have some fun Hufflepuffy ATCs.
I used this simple pillow box tutorial to create this little pillow box to hold some tea for a swap. This one is Classic Pooh-themed, so I found some honey-flavored tea to put into it. I drew a honeycomb pattern on it.
Last year for Captain Picard Day (come on, you know you celebrated it too) I made a mini Horga’hn statue for my partner in a swap, among other items. Took a bit of mixing to get the right color brown, and it took days to dry. At one point, it got knocked over and I had to rebuild and reshape it. And parts kept collapsing. Clearly, this thing would have been a lot better made of wood and not play-dough. But, in the end, I think it turned out all right.
