Harry Potter Mini Album

Last week-end I managed to finish my big Harry Potter project, a mini album with photos of my trip to the Warner Bros Studio Tour in London. The story is one of destiny (way to be dramatic, uh ?), as I was supposed to go to Bath that day, but the Jane Austen Centre was closed so we chosed to go to the Studios instead. My friend Filipa and I are huge fans of HP and we were really excited. The good thing is that you’re allowed to take pictures and even encouraged to do so ! Enough blabber, here come the pics & details πŸ˜‰

❄ A Very Potter-y Christmas β„

It’s that time of the year ! For a few years now, we’ve decided to decorate our christmas tree according to a theme. We’ve had a “geeky” tree, an Irish tree, a Venitian one etc. And this year’s theme is…. *drumroll* … Harry Potter ! My little sister and I are die-hard fans of the Harry Potter franchise, so we had a lot of fun decorating the tree with Gryffindor colors (my sister’s house. I’m a slytherin, but green and silver are not very “homey” colours), stuff we bought and also trinkets from our own personal collections πŸ™‚ Here are some pictures, withoutΒ  delay !

❄ Harry Potter Xmas Tree – Full view ❄

I made the tree topper myself. It’s the Sorting Hat. I used some black cardstock for the cone, cereal box cardstock for the base, a very old shirt of my dad’s, my hot glue gun and acrylic paint I found in my paint stash. First you have to make the “hat” base, you can use stapples to attach the cone to the base of the hat. Then you start glueing the fabric piece with the glue gun. I tried to replicate the creases and shadows of the actual Sorting Hat, but if you have difficulty doing so, you can always recreate the details with different shades of paint. Once it’s all set, you can paint it with regular acrylic paint, it will harden it a bit – and that’s what we want. I used black paint mixed with water to darken the “eyes” and “mouth” of the hat, so it would’nt stand out to much, but still be darker than the rest of the hat.

I also made a very simple Weasley jumper, with a “R” like Ron (we all know Ron’s the best ^^). I just cut a piece of dark red felt in the shape of a sweater, hot glued little bits at the end of the sleeves and added a R sticker from my scrapbooking stash πŸ™‚ Other than that, I added little parchment rolls, miniature brooms, various horcruxes, keyrings, toys etc. I already owned. We even added a christmas sock for Dobby πŸ˜‰ I also made little lightnings and the deathly hallows symbol with my Silhouette, you’ll find a link to the free files at the end of the article πŸ˜‰

Harry Potter Gift Pack

So a while back, I had to prepare a gift for my friend’s birthday. At first, I was only planning on giving her stuff related to London, in preparation of our trip later that year. Then I stumbled upon a very good tutorial on how to make your own Hogwarts acceptance letter. Then I remembered the mold I bought a few months ago, and it all clicked into place πŸ™‚ My friend was very happy to open her “HP Pack”, so here are the content list, some pics and links to help you make your own πŸ™‚

Harry Potter Gift Pack (back to school theme)

Hogwarts acceptance letter, complete with school supplies list and letter from Percy Weasley [here]
– A box of ChocoFrogs : you can make the box yourself, there are a lot of printable ones on the internet.
– A personnalized “Famous Wizard Card” (I made one with a picture of my friend and a made up biography on the back)
– Pins related to HP. I don’t have pictures, but I used a machine to make Prefect, WWW and other kinds of pins.
Bertie Botts Beans : you can either get the official ones from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter (Florida) or use basic candy beans.

So, in this precise case, my frog mold was designed to make big frogs, the exact same size as the ones sold in Florida. So when I put together the chocofrog box, it was to small to receive more than one frog. So I put the pins in the box instead, and created a new box for the frogs. I bought a golden chocolate box, put my six frogs (3 milk chocolate, 3 white chocolate) and then decorated the box with a HoneyDukes gift tag and some pink and green ribbon.

The custom “Famous Wizard Card” (my friend and I study anthropology, hence the weird biography on the back :p).

Et voilΓ  ! Please send me pics of your cards and frogs πŸ™‚
