Step 2: Instructions
Most of these are as easy as printing and cutting them out. The following tips/instructions are to help beyond that. Please see the video and/or photos for reference.
Hogwarts House Patches
Tape a safety pin to the back to pin them to your guests' shirts.
Lumos Nox Light Switch Covers
Use double sided tape to stick them to your light switch covers.
To make this look more weathered and old, fold creases along the fold lines. Rip one side off to make it look like it look like it was torn out of a book. Make small tears at the edge of the paper where the folds start, and then curl the edges of the tears a little bit. Wad the page into a ball, then open it up and flatten it out again.
Undesirable No. 1 Flyer
Print out a bunch of them and fill a wall with them. Save one to put inside the Daily Prophet.
The Daily Prophet
Put the Undesirable No. 1 flyer after the first page of the Prophet, then tri-fold the whole paper to make it look like a news paper.
Marauder's Map Lite
You'll need to fold the Marauder's Map and glue the middle piece into place. See the photos and/or video for more help.
Advanced Potion Making/History of Magic Book Sleeves
Cut out the Advanced Potion Making sleeve first, then line it up on top of the History of Magic template to find your cut lines. Advanced potion making was designed to fit the hardback version of the Half-Blood Prince, and the History of Magic sleeve was designed to fit the hardback version of the Prisoner of Azkaban.
After cutting out the template, hold one of the earpieces where it would wrap around your ear. Make a fold where the front of the glasses should start to make sure they will fit you. Make the same fold on the opposite earpiece. Use double-sided tape to tape them onto the glasses. Cut out a small hole in the middle of each "lens" of the glasses. Alternatively you could use a hole punch to make the holes. If you use scissors to cut the holes, round them out by pushing the mack end of a pen through the holes.
Step 3: You're Finished!

Can you please make "textbook" covers for the rest of the books? I would love for all my HP books to look like texts from the stories. Transfiguration, Defensive Magical Theory (for book 5, of course!), Hogwarts, A History, and maybe one of the Gilderoy Lockart titles for book 2. It would be absolutely amazing! I love your work. I am using some of your printables to create an "Escape from Gringott's" activity for my students.
How do you print off the template?
