DIY Harry Potter Series – HP Franchise Magazines

A very easy and fun DIY to stack your library with HP themed magazines. Perfect to give as gifts to friends or to read on a cold, rainy day.


You will need:

  • A good, working printer
  • Google images
  • Elmer’s glue
  • Scissors

What you do:

  1. Decide what books you would like to re-create from the franchise. I decided to do a ‘Dark Forces: A Guide To Self Protection’. Here’s the fun part. Do a google search finding images and articles to match your topic and print the sheets out. IMG_0414.JPG
  2. The first step is to create the front and back cover. I found one page with the title of my book and put a related topic for the back.
  3. Print both sheets and cut them out with some extra paper on either side (about an inch). Add a small strip of glue to the inner side of the back cover and stick it tot he front (make sure the pages are aligned correctly).IMG_0415
  4. Let it dry and start gathering the inner pages to stick in. Decide how may pages you need and find content for both sides of the page.
  5. Decide the order of the pages and stick one image to the backside of another page to form a double sided page. Stick this page into your book.
  6. Start with the last page and stick each page over it to form a book. Let everything dry.
  7.  You might have to add more glue to stick the pages in firmly. Try adding some advertisements or posters for certain products etc.
