Introduction: Borgin and Burkes Catalogue
In this Harry Potter DIY we'll be making a Borgin and Burkes Catalogue. I'll go over how to customize the templates in Photoshop as well as how to put the magazine together after printing. Enjoy!

You'll also need to download my free templates available below. I am not referring to the instructables PDF (which requires a paid subscription). You want to download the .zip file.

Step 2: Printing, Stapling, Folding and Cutting
I suggest printing the 11x17 templates for the best results, although you can print the 8.5x11 templates if you have to. Either way, you should definitely try to print the cover on card stock and the interior pages on regular paper - all double sided.
Next, line up the pages (make sure they're in order) and put paper clamps on them to make sure they stay aligned as we staple them.
I use a long reach stapler to saddle stitch the 11x17 pages. You can also staple by hand if you don't have a long reach stapler. If you're working with the 8,5x11 templates you can follow step 3 of my Wizard Wheezes Catalogue which is assembled in the same way.
If you've printed the 11x17, now you can fold it in half where you stapled and use a ruler and x-acto knife to trim off all of the white space.
Step 3: You're Finished!
That's it! You're all done!
