Well I'm an old Harry Potter fan who's been missing the fandom. And I was thinking about trying my hand at making a shrine after seeing so many cool ones on craftster. So when I was in the Ongoing Wish Swap and saw someone had a Harry Potter shrine on their wish list it felt like the perfect thing to craft Smiley I chose to use an Altoids mint tin as my base.
The outside has one of my favorite quotes written on aged paper along with a speical key that I'm sure all Harry Potter fans will understand being there Smiley

When you open it the top part has another favorite quote of mine Cheesy Along with a wand, owl, and real spider that I encased in resin.

And the bottom was done up like a Hogwarts classroom. And with how badly that cauldron is bubbling over I feel like Nevil may be in this class lol. I wish I has better pictures of the house crests on each side on the inside of the tin. And of the clear swirling legs I used for it to stand on to make it look like the shrine was floating on air. Also, the tiny candle by the crystal ball? Yeahhhhh I burned myself 3 times making that tiny thing with real wax Tongue lol.

The back, which I also can't find my picture of Sad , has a howler red backing with the swap date and such on the back. Hope you guys enjoyed looking Smiley

I wanted to join (I think that's to blame for my desire to craft Harry Potter goodies lol) but reading over it, it was all so confusing that I'm embarrassed to say I couldn't figure it all out  Embarrassed

I couldn't at first either and I still haven't joined. I get some of it but it looks too complicated. I am always in the Harry potter swaps though.  Grin I am in one now and already can't wait for the next one. Smiley
