Take the three straws and cut them each in half so you have 6 smaller sections.
Push a straw section in between the rings about a half a centimeter.
Cut on the two edges of the straw facing the inside of the ring.
Using the hot glue gun, squeeze a little glue onto one of the sections of straw and fold it over. Repeat for the other side.
Do this for all 6 rings and then spray paint them gold.
To attach these to the field, just cut them on two sides again and duct tape down.
Take the thin twigs and cut them into 12 sections each about 3 inches (7.62cm) long.
Cut 12 pieces of copper wire each about 12 inches (30.48cm) long.
Take a piece of the straw like material and bend it in half about 1.5 inches (4 cm) back and forth until you run out of that piece.
Put one twig in it partially, about .4 inches (1 cm) in, wrap the straw around and wrap around the whole thing with the copper wire.
Repeat for the rest of the brooms.
On the cardboard, make a pattern or "net" for the trunk using the dimensions of about 1.5 in x2.5 in x1.5 in (3.81cm x 6.35cm x 3.81cm).
Make one end a lot longer so that the trunk can have a nice curved lid.
Take the two sort ends and round them off so they are arched.
Hot glue the pattern or net together and paint it brown.
Once the paint is dry, trim the long side so it just overlaps a bit with the trunk.
For the clasp, take the thumbtack and peel off the colored coating so it's gold.
Poke this through the trunk so that it holds the two parts together.
Cut off a section of eraser, paint it brown and hot glue it to the inside of the chest where the tack pokes through so that the balls won't be punctured.
Take a section of the gold Sculpey, and mold it into a ball, making sure it fits through the scoring rings.
Using your fingers, make three indentations.
Repeat once and bake according to package directions.
Crumple paper into a ball the size of the Quaffle you just made.
Cover it with a couple layers of duct tape.
Do this again for the other one.
Take the safety pins, unbend them so they stick straight out and duct tape them to the paper.
Stick the bludgers on the pins and cover them entirely with brown fabric paint. Let dry.
Take a small piece of yellow duct tape and crumple it into a ball a little bigger than a pea.
Take a little bit of the white duct tape and fold it over so it's not sticky.
Fold it into quarters and cut out a simple leaf shape, making sure you don't cut out the bottom.
Open it up, and you should have two pieces each attached to it's reflection.
Use one half as something to put the tape on and tape it to the yellow part.
Repeat for the other side, and the snitch is complete.
Cut a piece of cardboard about 18 in x 9 in (45.72cm x 22.86cm).
Round off the corners to make it an oval.
Cover with green duct tape.
Cut 4 pieces of cardboard 2 in x 3in (5.08cm x 7.62cm).
Cover these with green duct tape as well.
Attach the four towers to the four pieces of cardboard and then attach those to the four sides of the field.
Use the white fabric paint to paint an inner oval on the big one and then a line going down the middle of the small oval with a circle in the middle of that.
Arrange the brooms 6 on each side, and you're ready to show off your masterpiece!!

Think about it. Would you take a Prisoner of Azkaban book, photocopy it, put your name in big red letters on the front cover and try to sell it in your local library? The answer is, obviously, no. Well, selling crafts you have made but not designed would be just as bad!
