Harry Potter Craft Swap

Hello my lovelies,

Last year, I participated in a craft swap but sadly I did not receive my swap.  Our craft group swap organiser asked the group for swap angels to make a little something for those who did not receive their swaps. A lovely lady called Woozelmom who has a great blog, agreed to be my swap angel and I waited patiently for my owl delivery.

This is what arrived – by royal mail, I might add, not owl. LOL!

These posters are so clever and must have taken a lot of time to word and design.

Stan Shunpike’s conductors ID came with the posters

as well as a ticket for the Knight Bus.  Again, I can’t believe the detail on this ticket!

I’ve removed my address from the front of the envelope for security reasons. I just love that the owls seem to be clutching the letter. There was one for me and one for my daughter.

This is the back of the envelope with the Hogwarts hot wax crest. The detail on the crest was amazing.

Inside my daughter’s letter it said

and there was this lovely wrapped gift from Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes for her. I love the details of the Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes logo on the top of the paper bag.

Inside the package was little little lady.  My daughter has called her Candy Floss ‘Flossie’ for short.  Again, the details are just phenomenal!  Flossie has a little bed, favourite cookie and a little soft comfort toy.

And here Flossie is snug in her bed. This Pygmy Puff has such beautiful details including little ears, a cute pom pom nose and the cutest ever little feet!

Flossie loves to sit on my daughter’s shoulder.

My part of the parcel held such exciting goodies. I completely forgot to take a picture of the letter from Charlie Weasley that accompanied this little package.

There’s something so intriuging about a brown paper wrapped gift.  It looks in no way ostentatious and gives no clues with it’s humble appearance.

Charlie’s letter said that he was sending me a Chinese Fireball Dragon’s egg because it never grew big enough to hatch.

The printout that was in the box is a copy of the Chinese Fireball’s carer Harvey Ridgebit field notes on the egg.

Isn’t it gorgeous!

The next item blew my mind! I have no idea how Woozlemom printed onto this fabric so cleanly.  And the box is covered so perfectly, it looks as if it were made that way.

Inside sat these goodies.

A Gyffindor themed bracelet

and this really cute snitch necklace

Also in the bottom of the package was a box of Bertie Bott’s every flavour beans!  I’m apprehensive to try these because the flavours include dirt, boogers, sausage and earwax!

I feel thoroughly spoiled by such lovely presents and if you want some Harry Potter inspiration check out Woozlemom’s blog.

Bright blessings,

Mama R
