Details of swap:
It seems there are a great many of us who are eagerly awaiting the release of Part 1 of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.  Sometimes it seems that November 19th will never get here.  Well never fear my crafty friends because this swap will help you get through the waiting period!  Unlike a normal Harry Potter swap, this swap is designed specifically to prepare your partner to go see the film (theoretically on opening night, if they so desire).  This does not mean that craft items have to be based on the movie.  The goal is to create items that your partner can enjoy AT the film, and while waiting for hours in line.

Each participant will be crafting 3 items:
1 wearable item (like a tee, House tie or scarf, Jewelry, etc.)
1 accessory, toy, or game (like a wand, a stuffie/doll, or game of Exploding Snap!)
1 snack or treat  

Your package must include 1 Large, 1 Medium, and 1 Small item.  (Or if you prefer the points counting system, one 3 point item, one 2 point item, and one 1 point item.  For more info on size guidelines, see HERE)   You may choose which category items to create for which size.  For example:

You could make a "Large" stenciled tee, a "Medium" wooden wand, and a "Small" batch of homemade cauldron cakes.  

Or you could make a "Large" Skiving Snackbox full of tons of different types of homemade candy treats, a "Medium" crocheted toy Pygmy Puff, and a "Small" house themed bracelet.

These choices are left up to you, but make sure you take into account your partners interests and information from their questionnaire when deciding what to craft.  If they are going to the movie alone, a giant box of candy might be too much, while if they were going with a large group, it might be more appropriate.  
Please be sure to check the original interest thread for a large list of links to HP themed craft projects:
Decked Out for Deathly Hallows Interest Thread, including inspirational crafts!

This swap has a long crafting period, approximately 6 1/2 weeks.
 Please make sure you keep in touch during that time, both with your partner and your organizer.  Please check in on the thread at least once a week, and if you plan to go out of town for a while, please let your partner and organizer know, so we dont worry about you!  Smiley

This swap is expected to be very large, and we have 3 organizers.  You will be assigned to a specific organizers House, and you should send all your communication to that person.  When you send, and when you receive you must PM your specific organizer and your partner to tell them so.  Please make the subject line of your PM; Decked Out for Deathly Hallows: Sent, or  Decked Out for Deathly Hallows: Received to help us stay organized.

Please note that all official Craftster Swap rules will be observed in this swap.  New swappers (and even old swappers) should be sure to review the Swap Info Guide as well as Swap FAQs, and the Information and Tips for Swappers pages.   If you do not see an answer to your question, you are also ALWAYS welcome to talk to any of your organizers via PM.  

One final note:  This swap is designed around an even with fixed time frame.  The film opens on November 19th (or the 18th at midnight), and many, if not most of the people in this swap plan to attend that day.  If you send your package late, you risk your partner not receiving it in time to enjoy at the film. Please weigh that, against the size requirements, and your own time commitments when deciding whether or not to join this swap.
