I KNEW I Forgot Something

Of course! All Chocolate Frogs come with collectable famous witch or wizard cards. DUH!

There was only enough room on the backs to put their name. I thought it would be funny to have a Gandalf card since my boyfriend always (irritatingly) calls Dumbledore "Gandalf."

Albus Dumbledore's card perched atop my grimy finger. I couldn't fit his WHOLE name! (Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore)

I'm thinking of opening an Etsy after I build up some stock. My only problem is that I have no idea how much I'd charge for items. For example, Chocolate Frogs... first of all... who would buy them? Not many people I don't think. How much do the materials cost me? Not much. Labor? Well I ENJOY making them... My boyfriend said I should sell them like baseball cards. A certain number for a certain price but you don't get to choose which collectable cards you get. Books too. For example, sell my mini books a certain number of them for a certain price but you don't get to choose WHICH books you get.

The trunk it coming along. I wish I had taken "before" photos. It started out as mere foamboard.

The inside (so far). There is a photo of Ginny hugging Harry, and Hermione and Ron laughing, and a Gryffindor sticker on the top
In the bottom are some things possibly going inside. I haven't decided yet, as I've (shamefully but admittedly) grown very fond of some of the items and (selfishly) don't want to give them up. I may just start making some doubles. Haha

Like the Felix Felicis for example. I made a little golden stand that holds it up as well. You can kind of see it in the picture above inside the trunk.

I'm pretty proud of this book, as it's the first one I've made that you can actually READ!

It's chock full of cool Quidditch facts and pictures!

There are 20 pages in all. These are just a few examples.

I want to make an Alice and Wonderland book next that you can read... ok I really want to make an Alice in Wonderland POP UP mini book but whoa whoa... I'm getting ahead of myself.
