I love making handmade cards, so when DoSomething.org asked me to put together a video tutorial for some original designs, I jumped at the opportunity! Of course, my first thought was to design some Harry Potter-inspired cards.
Watch this video to learn how to make your own golden snitch card, an owl post card, and a deathly hallows card! And if you don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day, you could customize them to work for other holidays!
To download the template pdf so you can print out the pieces you’ll need, click here! The file is free, but consider writing a quick post for your social media if you’d be willing to share the tutorial with your friends!
Here are all of the supplies you’ll need to make these cards:
1. Print out both pages of this template PDF.
3. Cardstock in the following colors (or whichever colors you choose): white, solid yellow, gold glitter, black, red, and parchment.
6. Double sided foam mounting adhesive
7. Black pen or marker
These cards would be such a thoughtful and simple gift to make for all of the Harry Potter fans in your life. I even designed the owl valentine to look like the owl plushies I make and sell on my etsy shop, Fairweather Friends if you’re looking for something soft and cute to give in addition to the card!
If you make these cards, I’d love to see how they turned out! Post a photo of them on social media using #laurenfairweather.
