Introduction: Quidditch Programme + Tickets + Posters
I've had tons of requests for a Quidditch related DIY. So, here's a tutorial to make a Quidditch Programme replica as well as tickets and posters!
- Cutting Mat - Get it here
- X-Acto Knife – Get it here
- Metal Ruler – Get it here
- Staples - Get it here
- Thumb Tack - Get it here
- Paper Clamps - Get it here
- 11x17 Paper - Get it here
- 8.5x11 or A4 Paper - Get it here
- Light Glossy Paper - Get it here
You'll also need to download the free templates I've created, available below (desktop) or above (mobile). This will be a ZIP file. Not the Instructables PDF.
Once you've gathered your supplies, let's move on to the next step!
Step 1: Video Tutorial
Watch the video tutorial or follow the written steps.
Step 2: Printing
Print out the Quidditch Programme templates double-sided. Use the glossy paper linked in the introduction for the best results.
Print the Quidditch Final tickets double-sided on card stock (glossy or matte).
Print the Quidditch Posters, single-sided, on 11x17 paper. You can also print them on 8.5x11 or A4 paper, but you'll have to glue the templates together to make them bigger.
Step 3: Cutting
On a cutting mat, using a ruler and X-Acto knife cut any and all white borders from around the templates. To save time, you can stack multiple pages and clip them together with paper clamps to keep them together, then cut them out as you normally would. If you do, you'll probably need to go over the same spot a few times to make sure all pages have been cut through.
Step 4: Stapling and Folding
Stack the Quidditch Programme templates (make sure they're in the right order - refer to the template files) and use paper clamps to hold them together. Set that aside and place a row of staple refills on your cutting mat. Use a thumb tack to remove two staples from the refill.
Now, with your programme templates face down on the cutting mat, use one of the loose staples to mark where two staples should go along the spine (imagine a vertical line at the center of the template where the left and right pages meet). Use your tack to make holes where the staples would penetrate the template. Now feed the points of the staples through those holes. Flip the template over (make sure the staples don't fall out) and use your ruler to close the staples.
And now all you need to do is fold the template and half and you should end up with a six-page Quidditch Programme. 8 pages if you count the front and back covers.
Step 5: You're Finished!
That's it! You're all done!
