How to Make the Marauders Map




Introduction: How to Make the Marauders Map

About: Be Excellent To Each Other and Make stuff!!!

Hey guys today im going to show you how to make the Marauders map from harry potter this is what you will need:

a printer

parchment paper or regular paper

straight paper cutter or scissors

and a glue stick

Step 1: The Templates

here are two templates, if you are using a colored parchment paper and would like one without a background, use the "clear marauders map file" I created or if you're using a white parchment or regular paper use the "Marauders map file" (I did not make these templates I found them from the YouTube channel that I included in this instructable) here is the original(

Step 2: Cutting and Gluing

once you have printed out the templates you now need to cut them, I used a straight paper cutter to get best cut I could, once you have cut them, you need to line the designs up and get ready to glue, once they are all lined up you need to glue them down and once it's dry you need to fold it accordion style on the crease lines, if you need help you can refer to this video I found, it helped me fold them, I really loved making this and I hope you do too, if you make this please share a picture and encourage others, thanks for Reading

Hi I'm new but noticed your posts about the instruction video...the link is there but not active so here's how to see the video: (I'm on an iPad)
1. Select the link from "https.." to the end so it's hilighted.
2. Choose the edit option tag that pops up in black and white "look up"
3. Select "Search web" it will automatically take you to the you tube link just click the video to watch 😊
Hope that helps!

Your map looks wonderful but your instructable really needs more instructions. Its great that you provide the file, but the next step is just put it together with no guide as to how. Following the instructions I've printed out the files do I fold it? Where do I glue? How do i put it together? You also reference a video to help but you don't actually say how anyone can view said video.
