In the last book of the Harry Potter series, Hermione Granger had a purple beaded handbag upon which she placed a handy spell called an Undetectable Extension Charm.  The result was a little purse that contained all the necessary items for Harry, Hermione and Ron's Horcrux finding adventure.

This project has eight pages:
  1.  Ron's radio
  2.  Harry's moleskin pouch and the items found inside
  3.  The Sword of Godric Gryffindor
  4.  The Horcrux locket
  5.  Potions
  6.  The three items bequeathed to Ron, Harry and Hermione by Dumbledore in his Will.
  7.  Hermione's Books
  8.  Perkins's Tent

Each page is interactive.  First you can color your pages, assemble them. You can move things around or open items up.  And when you are done, tie the handbag up and save it for later.

Step 1: SUPPLIES:

First you are going to need a computer, printer and card stock paper.

OTHER MATERIALS:
  Stick on gems
  Double stick tape
  Stapler and staples
  String and large needle
  scissors
  scrapbooking brads
  markers, crayons, color pencils, or water colors ***   I really like Sharpies.
  wafer thin velcro
  ribbon

Step 2: PURSE COVER:

The original purse is purple, of course, but here is my version in green.

Add the stick on gems for the beads and some ribbon to the top to close the book.

Step 3: POTIONS PAGE:

In order to gain entrance to the Ministry of Magic, Polyjuice potion was used.  And Dittany was used to help Ron when he accidentally splinched himself when he apparated unsuccessfully. 

Each potion bottle has the thin velcro on the back so they can be moved and removed.

Step 4: THE SWORD OF GODRIC GRYFFINDOR:

I did take a creative approach with this page by including Fawlks.  I guess it's because I already included Snape's Patronus on another page.  Also, there is a removable feather, which is for the twin phoenix feathers in Harry and Voldemort's wands.

Cut a slit in the scabbard for the sword to fit inside.

Also, when you are taping this page to the one behind it, make sure to leave enough space in the tape for the sword to slip in and out.
Fun to do. Awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!

You can find ancient runes in ancient ruins, so... Anyway, I love this, my daughter got a book of this kind for her birthday, but not Harry Potter themed, and I had not even considered this as something one could make. You did a great job with it. My girls are too young to read yet, but once they do, and I get them to read Harry Potter, this will have to be made... Thanks for sharing!

Cool! I hate to sound like a grammar nazi, but it's ancient runes not ruins. Amazing job though!

I just realized that I spelled it wrong, which it took me some time because I KNOW HOW it was spelled in the book. I'm going to have to fix the PDF. I edit and proofread all day long, every day, so this is such a stupid mistake for me!!!!!!

Thank you so much for your comment. I know it is weird and I wondered about it as well, the spelling I mean. However, runes is the way J.K. Rowling spells it in the book series. Again, thanks =)
