The July 2016 Fandom in a Mini Bag swap is the Wizard of Oz.
Step 1: Please list in the comments your favorite characters, movies, books, songs, scenes, etc. Feel free to include Oz-related interests if you like, such as Wicked, the Wiz, etc.
Step 2: After partners are assigned, check to see what your partner likes. You can follow-up with a message if you need to know more. Then scrounge up, buy, and/or create items that fit in a bag. Your bag must contain at least 5 different types of items although more is certainly encouraged. (PLEASE try to make it look full). Different types of items means 5 ATCs, 3 pins, 2 postcards would be 10 items but only 3 different types. The swap requirement is for 5 different types in a bag.
Some ideas of themed items: stickers, ATCs, postcards, toys/action figures, comics, note cards, pins/buttons, magnets, jewelry, trading cards, legal music CDs, charms, ornaments, bookmarks, address labels, plushies/stuffies, promo stills/autograph cards, fanfic drabbles/ficlets, etc.
More specific ideas: poppy pin, There's No Place Like Home cross stitch sampler, postcard from Kansas, Emerald City brand something, Oz series book recommendations/actual books, etc.
Be sure to check your partner's profile so you don't send anything he or she might be allergic to.
Step 3: Put the items in a ziplock-type bag. Size: 1 quart (AT LEAST 8.5inches by 7 inches or 21.5cm by 18cm). You can decorate the bag or incorporate the bag into something (mount it or sew something around it). If you want to make or buy a bag instead of using a ziplock plastic one, that's fine as well, but it should be at least a quart in size. All items you gather or create should fit into the bag (if a couple are too big, that's fine).
Assemble your bags during the month of September and please send by the deadline (September 30).
Group rating rules apply. NO FLAKING ALLOWED! Flakers will be melted with a bucket of water.
