The April 2017 Fandom in a Mini Bag swap is Beatrix Potter.
Step 1: Please list in the comments your favorite characters, stories, adaptations, or any other preference you may have.
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: garden decorations, mini-zine of wisdom from the characters, needlepoint, coloring pages, etc.
Be sure to check your partner's profile so you don't send anything he or she might be allergic to. Also, if you're sending internationally, make sure to not break any laws by sending gardening items like seeds.
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 and please send by the deadline (March 31)
Group rating rules apply. NO FLAKING ALLOWED! Flakers will be sent to bed without any supper.
