The December 2012 Fandom in a Mini Bag swap is the Lord of the Rings/Hobbit fandom.
Step 1: Please list in the comments your favorite characters, moments, movies, scenes, books 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 items although more is certainly encouraged to make your bag look full of goodies.
Some ideas of themed items: stickers, ATCs, postcards, toys/action figures, comics, note cards, pins/buttons, magnets, jewelry, trading cards, charms, ornaments, bookmarks, address labels, plushies/stuffies, promo stills/autograph cards, fanfic drabbles/ficlets, soundtracks, etc.
More specific ideas: handdrawn map of Middle Earth, a "there and back again" travel journal, elf ears, Lorien leaf broach, banners for favorite towns, illustrations of your favorite parts of the books, drink coasters from the Prancing Pony, favorite recipes hobbits would like, a shiny gold ring, sword envelope openers, 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 (roughly 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, no one will complain).
Assemble your bags during the month of December and please send by the deadline (January 2--extended one day because January 1 is a holiday).
Group rating rules apply. NO FLAKING ALLOWED! The great eye will see all flakers!
