I reserve the right to refuse anyone. If you have feedback that shows a history of incomplete packages, very late sending, ill-communication, lack of DC #'s, etc. I may refuse you. I want this to be a love-filled and flake-free swap!


Swap Details
This swap is a variation on previous One Tiny Harry Potter Thing swaps.  In addition to crafting OTHPT, your package must also include a Valentine's card, and a small Valentines treat. Both the card and treat may be either handmade or store bought (no judgements here!), and may be HP themed, or not.  Please do take your partner's preferences and dietary restrictions into account when choosing your treat.  The focus of the swap is the crafted OTHPT.  It should be physically small and should be something that you can craft with a high level of skill.  Even if it is a fairly simple/easy item for you to make, please embellish so that it best represents your skill.  (For example, if you wish to make a coin purse, you could embroider, add beading, or take other steps to make it a really special piece.)  

* You will receive only one partner.
*Your OTHPT must be 4"x4" or smaller.
*You must include 1 Valentine's card for your partner, either handmade or purchased.
*You must include 1 small Valentine's treat for your partner, either handmade or purchased.


How do you know if your idea is "tiny?"  Examples:  A coin purse is tiny; a clutch purse is not.  A pair of earrings/pendant is tiny.  A trinket box is tiny; a pencil box is not.  If you're not sure if your idea qualifies as "tiny," ask your organizer!

For a wonderful swap experience, communication is the key.  Please keep in touch with your partner.  Further, as per Craftster guidelines, you must post in this thread at least once a week. You could just stop in for a quick hello.....or if on holiday or will be without internet access or anything of the such, just post a message....it gives your partner and organizer warm fuzzy feelings to know you are still around.

Final note: Since this is a holiday-specific swap, if you have not sent by 3 days past Sendouts, you will get temporary negative feedback until you send.  I don't mean to be harsh, but no one wants to be the only kid in class to not get a Valentine.  This temporary negative will be reversed when your partner receives.  


If you want to participate, information to send to organizer: (Remember to send your info to your organizer via Private Message (PM) and not to reply with it here)

Don't worry VexingVendibles. There is *always* another HP swap on the horizon.  I frequently organize, and many of the swappers involved come back time and again to play with us.  There was talk of a One Awesome HP Thing Swap, with may happen in the spring/early summer.  It is much like the One Tiny Thing Swap, but instead of an object under 4"x4"x4", you can create an object of any dimensions, provided it is incredibly awesomely awesome.  Then in August, we frequently do a Back to Hogwarts Swap, and in November a HP Holiday Swap.  So, lots of options. 

While you wait though, feel free to check out the Harry Potter Craftalong.  We are always crafting over there, and you DO NOT have to make just HP themed crafts.  Our craftalong uses prompts themed around the Hogwarts classes, in order to get your creative juices going.  You can participate as much or as little as you wish, and every project you post there earns House Points for your chosen Hogwart's House.  Smiley
