Happy Tenth Craftster!

For my tin entry I repurposed an altoid tin to a moving Quidditch box.



I found some neat Hogwarts and Quidditch pictures and glued them around the box, using a grass paper for the inside.


Also made a little Harry catching the snitch.  Twisted some wire for the base then glued broomstick Harry onto the bend and added a yellow bead with fluffed feathers.


Moving you ask?  Well here's how!  Using a magnet at the bottom, it catches Harry's twisted wire base and you can make him fly around and try to catch the snitch.
Here's my girly testing it out.  She loves it!  Had to hurry and take pictures before she ran off with it.

And I'm pretty sure that's a cinnamon altoid tin so it's gold and maroon edges. Go, go, Gryffindor!
