I love a good party. Okay I am obsessed with good parties.
The next party in our house…you guessed it a Harry Potter party. A party perfect for any Witch or Wizard.
Before any party though has to come a fun party invite!
Today I am sharing with you a how-to on making this Harry Potter party invite.
What you need:
you can use any template you want…this one opened like I wanted
and fit on a regular size of cardstock
Next, go crazy with the ink. Make it look old and all antique. When you are done, fold the envelope according to the directions on the template.
Almost done! Cut the invitations. Fold in half and make sure they fit inside the envelope.
Place the invite inside the envelope.
Now it is time to make your fake wax seal.
Take your red clay, break off a tiny bit and roll into a ball. Then smoosh…yes that is an official crafting term…the clay onto the point on the top flap of the envelope. Make is look like a melted circle. Then take a coin, any coin, and press it in the middle of the clay circle. This will help it look like a seal.
If you press hard enough, the clay should hold in place. However, if you find the clay seal lifting, you can hot glue it in place.
Now you have all of your official looking Harry Potter invitations.
Any Witch or Wizard would be thrilled to see his/her name on the invitation.
In true Potter fashion, of course the invitation will be delivered by OWL.
