Squeeeeeee!!!! I'm so glad I joined this swap!  *crosses fingers for getting home from vacation impatiently*
Making that stuff made me seriously Slytherin-Envious.... I may have to pretend to be a Death Eater just so I can make it for myself. Wink

How to make the "Stained Glass" Death Eater Box
1.  Take apart a wooden box with glass.  I love using drills & power screwdrivers, so this was my favorite part.  Cheesy
2.  Paint everything on the outside, use lots of tape to try to keep it remotely neat.
3.  Find a dark mark picture or some other picture that you'd like to use.  I used Hot Tpoic's Dark Mark Tattoo as my basic pattern.
I actually measured carefully (a serious rarity for me!  I'm an impatient crafter when I make things for myself) and all that stuff.  I ubertaped it down on the opposite side of the glass.
4.  Get Plaid's Gallery Glass leading. It was easy to clean up for the most part, and as long as I took my time it was pretty easy to trace.  I traced the BASIC outline first and then worked in on smaller things.  It didn't come out perfectly (again, I'm impatient), but I was pretty happy with the end result.  This took the longest as everyting had to dry a lot before I added details.
5.  Find the images to decoupage on the inside.  Obviously, wait for the paint to dry, but the decoupage doesn't take as long as the leading and paint, so you can start this a bit later.  I used the Slytherins from Makani (Heather C's) site.  She has all kinds of fantastic stuff!! Smiley
6.  After the leading has dried, add the stained glass color.  My paints are in SC, but I will post the colors I used once I'm home again.  I will tell you that I don't think I'll use the silver again.  It had much less of the stained glass look I wanted and more of a paint-y look.  However, I loved how the green came out.  I did find that it looks MUCH better if you paint in little swirls rather than straight lines.
Ummm I think that's that.

LOOKING FOR A PERSONAL SWAP: I'm hoping for dinosaur-themed Xmas crackers, or other dinosaur Xmas items. I can make a Jayne Cobb hat, or many other things!

OK, so ficklevillan's mom still has the camera and I took some snaps before I shipped.  Smiley  She already listed what I sent, above, so here are the photos!

Here's the lot (remaining photos are clickable thumbnails):


My desk chair modeling the House Scarf and the painted-flare detail of the lounge pant-legs:
   

The Fred & George Esape chapter illustration pouch, lining, and extras:
             

And the notecards: Slytherin Crest (4 of the same image) and the Men of Slytherin (4 different images):

The bag is made from a denim mini-skirt I've been tripping over in my sewing room for far too many years, now.  (I bought it during a moment of over-heated weakness in Vegas 5 years ago and never wore it again.)  Construction was pretty simple once I got the design on it.

To do the design, I found the chapter illustration online and printed it out at the size I wanted for the finished object.  Then I mixed white and glow-in-the-dark puff paint together and free-handed the moon, stars, and "trail" from Hogwarts.

While that was drying, I made separate stencils of Hogwarts, Fred & George, and the lights of Hogwarts.  I stenciled the first two in black, let them dry, then stenciled the lights in more white-and-GITD paint.  I still wasn't quite happy with it, so I hit Fred & George with some silver glitter-glue.

I find that glitter solves an awful lot of woes ...

From there, let dry and assemble into pouch-thing.  Smiley

And thank you for your kind words.  Cheesy

(The Dark Marks on the pants are also done with multi-part stencils.  Unfortunately, I wasn't patient enough between steps, so a few of them smeared.)
