Rock Gods Fan Club Swap

I have wanted to do something like this for ages, but nothing came up so I ran it myself. The idea was to send a load of little goodies to your swap partner based on their favourite band/solo artist. Sort of like the fan club welcome packs that I so looked forward to as a teen, but the contents this time could be whatever you felt like.

This is the one I made for the lovely Jas based on Dave Grohl.

Firstly, there is a little box of notecards.

Inside the box is a pic with an appropriate quote.

And just some of the notecards, all with illustrated Dave Grohl lyrics and envelopes. I think there are about 14 in all. Just an aside - I do NOT like making envelopes!

The next part is the tins. The big one is the top of a tin containing some canvases (more on that soon).  The little rectangular tin contains some fun Foo Fighters plectrums (with lots of them featuring Mr Grohl). The plain silver tin has a necklace with a pic of Dave and some appropriate charms. On the right is some temporary tattoos that I repackaged. 

Actually, I bought them online with no measurements and they are teeny weeny but similar, so I did this for the back.

Hmmmm, what else? Oh yes, the canvases. A little triptych that I made.

Plus, I discovered that the Foos have some great gig posters, so here is a little book of  about 30 of them.

And finally, no swap would be complete without chocolate, so here is a repackaged choccie bar, Dave Grohl style.

Jas, I really enjoyed making it and I hope it's okay.

Cheers for now, R x
