Potter-ish Trunks

EDIT: All supplies for this project are listed at the end of this post. There have been a lot of requests for the little books >>> PLEASE SEE THIS POST for info on making your own.


I've had a pair of Paper Mache Treasure Chests sitting around here for ages. I had an idea what I wanted to do with them, but it took the arrival of Graphic 45's An Eerie Tale to kick my butt into gear.


Pretty cute, eh? And inside is packed with even more awesome...  Each of those magic little trunks hold all sorts of goodies fit for any first year Hogwart's student!

Inside each trunk you'll find the required first year textbooks, wand, scrolls, quill, mandrake, pumpkin pods, tiny owl bead, winged key, vials and bottles and scrolls and even a wizard painting (which is a mini copy of a wizard painting I did AGES ago) and more. For size reference here are the textbooks...

Now, those little trunks were a load of fun to create and I KNOW there are a few magically inclined, not-at-all-mugglish types who might want to make their own, so....

I created this "Little Potions" collage sheet for Alpha Stamps with a SLEW of miniature potion labels and mystical scrolls and parchments that you can use to make these...

... to fill your own Potter-ish chest, wizards room or potions diorama. Just remember, it's leviosa not leviosa.
