This is not your friend's father's project either. I created the folding design, I drew the map by hand, and it has been on my website with complete instructions since 2006. Anyone is free to download my map & instructions from my website as long as it is for their own personal non-commercial use, but I don't appreciate anyone posting my content like this without my permission. Thanks to the anonymous instructables reader who let me know about this.

Britta, would you make an instructable of your map (Yes I know that this is a link to YOUR instructions, but I love Instructables so I would love to find yours here. Heading over to your web site now.

I made a Marauder's map for a Harry Potter party. It was of our house and I printed it on some nicely yellowy parchment.

We made footprint paths on it that led to prizes. The footprints were made with a little rubber stamp of a foot and UV stamp ink. The UV stamp ink is a very light greenish-yellow in regular light, but you can't really see it on the yellow parchment. Then, we used KaptinScarlet's magic wand 'ible of the UV wand and made wands for everyone. The party goers had to use their wands to find the prizes.

It was really fun.

You should read brittadotcom´s comment further down on this. And above all it says: The Marauders Map "by" Olivander, It dosn´t say "my link to someone elses work"

What a neat map, I tried both links but for some reason the instructions will print out but the map will not. Am I doing something wrong? I even tried to just print out page 6 of the PDF document as well and that didn't work either. Any pointers? And I love your site as well. too fun!
