Swap and Share!

*pic used with permission from FiberAlchemist*

For this challenge I’m presenting the package that I sent back in the 2016 I want to live in the Burrow Harry Potter swap.  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=448585.msg5399089#msg5399089


I’m pretty sure my inspiration started with the bowls.  I found the bowls at the dollar store and I think they had red, green, and blue.  I had been playing around with sharpie-paint mugs and went “ooh! I can make these into HP house bowls!” But…. They didn’t have yellow.  I bought what I could and went home and searched the website.  They had yellow!  I happy danced…. Until I saw they only shipped in packs of 40.  I went a little bonkers on that.  I didn’t need 40 yellow bowls lol.  So I proceeded to check every dollar store on… a one hundred mile long path.  The store that finally had one was 80 miles away from me lol.  Now -that- was a happy dance.  

Got all the bowls home and went about paint pen-ing them and then I saw in one of the movie scenes a real cereal box and jaw dropped.  I must make!

 
I took a couple days to create the box in photoshop to look as much like the original box that I could.  I even made a date and price and ingredients.  (CheeriOwls is about $4.50 muggle money)  Was fun!  Modge podged it on a cereal box.


And packages are all about the details!  A local store sells cereal marshmallows, so I made a matching label and added that.  And made up a cute fast pygmy puff to rummage around in the bottom for crumbs.

Quick tute for paint mugs.  Make sure to use sharpie PAINT pens, not regular sharpies.  I have a vinyl cutting machine, so I used that for stickers.  But you could freehand anything you wanted.




Thanks to Fiber for swapping and Jennie for hosting that swap!
And Thanks for looking!
