Thanks! This map is a direct replica of the map you can purchase at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. It is different from the one in the movie as some pages have been omitted, probably to make it cheaper to produce. I'm not sure if any floors were left out or not.
Bummer. You can still make the map though. It will just be slightly smaller and you'll have to trim the edges off.
The download link for the templates is included in the introduction.
There should be a couple of files in the ZIP for the backs of the flaps. I'm downloading it now to check. If they aren't included, I'll add them and re-upload.
What are you having trouble with while trying to print the templates?
You did everything right. The issue is in the original scans used to create the templates. The size seems to be off there too. I've noticed this and hope to correct it at some point. Thanks!
Wonderful! Thanks! Glad you like it!
You will end up with 22 print outs that you will then trim and glue together. The downloads work for me on my computer. Maybe try a different browser.
The templates are based on standard 8.5 x 11 inch printer paper. You can also use A4, you'll just need to trim more off and the map might be slightly smaller. By an inch maybe.
The download links are right after the list of supplies in the introduction.
Yes, it will. If you don't print them out double sided you will end up with the map with a blank white back.
Awesome! I'm glad you figured it out. I was at a bit of a loss as to why this would happen.
These templates are created from scans of the official replica. So removing the background would not be an easy task, unfortunately.
marauders-map-front-a01.jpg should be paired with marauders-map-back-a01.jpg and so forth.You could use just one of the backs for all pages if you want, but I was worried that it would look too repeated, so each back is slightly different.
I have no problems downloading the zip files, extracting them to my desktop, and opening the images. I'm not sure why you are having issues, but you might try using a different web browser to download them (works for me in Chrome and Firefox). Also, what program are you using to open the images?
This sounds like an issue with your printer and/or ink. You may want to install some fresh ink cartridges and try again.
The download link is in the description of step 1. It's not the PDF download at the top. I know this gets a bit confusing, but you don't have to pay anything. It's completely free.
Littlefallingstar has downloadable templates on her deviantart page (link in my intro). Her templates had a part where her watermark slightly overlapped the map, so I went ahead and created a full template without the overlap, and I included a full size back of the map too. You can now download that in the intro of this instructable.
Actually, littlefallingstar already had a full-page template available on her deviantart page (link in description). I went ahead and attached that and a full-size back template in a new zip file you can download in the intro to this instructable. The file is called full-map-by-dannymcmurray-and-littlefallingstar.zipI'm totally going to try the disappearing ink for the footprints! Nice idea. If it works out well I might add it to this instructable.

Awesome! Thanks! And I'm glad you liked it.
Thanks so much!The glue stick works wonderfully. I made a miniature one last year and it's still perfectly intact. I'm sure double sided tape would work too, but I'd be worried about it not being as flush as it could be or possibly falling apart later. I may be wrong, though.Haha, I'm thinking the only way to sort of simulate the footsteps would be with an under-lit shadow of some kind. Maybe someone can figure it out!
You're welcome! Sorry for the delay!
Here's the link to the full size instructable:http://www.instructables.com/id/Marauders-Map-FULL-SIZE-Replica/I meant to get this up a couple of days ago but my internet went down and I just got it back last night. Sorry for the delay!
Here's a new instructable for creating a full size Marauder's Map replica. It is just like the one you can buy at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.http://www.instructables.com/id/Marauders-Map-FULL-SIZE-Replica/
Marauder's Map FULL SIZE Re...View Instructable »
I'll be posting the tutorial within the next day or two. Just finished most of the video editing tonight.
This is a mini version, it's about 7 inches tall. But stay tuned, I'll be posting an updated instructable which shows you how to create a full-size map.
Refer to this screenshot. You should see buttons on PC or possibly just simple download links on mobile.
I'm not sure about the specifics, but in my video you can see that it goes from 0.01 km to 0.02 km in about 60 seconds on the fan.I can also confirm that using this method I hatched an egg. It had about 1 km to go so I attached it to the fan for about 2 hours or so and it hatched.
I have not broken any rules. I did not threaten or insult you. I only stated fact: that this instructable is made up of other people's work.
It doesn't matter. The files were created by me and are being used by you and the creator of the video without permission or credit. My instructable already shows how to create and fold the map. I'm sorry, but this is not your work.
And you're using someone else's video as your instructions. How is any of this your work?
Lol, wow... You totally just copied my instructable, files and all, and made your own out of it. I don't appreciate not even being mentioned, since you so blatantly took my files and instructions. And you didn't even credit the original uploader of the high res scans of the map.... Not cool at all. If anyone wants to see where the files and work actually came from, see LittleFallingStar on deviantart: http://littlefallingstar.deviantart.com/art/The-Ma... She did all the original scans and high res file creation. Without her work, no one would have any of these files. And if you want to see my instructable this person copied and stole the files from, it can be found here:http://www.instructables.com/id/Marauders-Map-1/
Thanks! And nice tip! I wanted this to be pretty simple for anyone to make, without needing to buy anything they probably don't already have. But I agree, gold leaf would look pretty cool.
Thanks! I have some ideas for an expansion. Haha. We'll see.
It's a small fan I got at Goodwill for $3. You can see the size of it compared to my phone in the photos and video.
Thanks! And you're welcome!
Hi! If you print it on standard paper (8.5 x 11) and you set your printer options to use borderless printing, yes it should print all the way to the edges of the paper.
Or during storms or winter. I get the feeling that people see this as cheating, and yeah I guess technically it is. lol. But there are times when it is a good thing, like when you and I have mentioned.
It took a lot of time, but it was worth it! Thanks!
I go outside walking to play the game all the time. It's the only way to utilize Pokestops, Gyms, and catch new Pokemon. This trick is for those times when you want your eggs to incubate, but for whatever reason you can't leave the house. :)
And also those who want their eggs to incubate while they watch a movie, do homework, take a nap, etc.
There are times you just cant go out walking though.
pTere are times you just can't go out walking though.
