I created this for the Deathly Hallows pt 2 swap and I'm so proud of it! Smiley

For the artwork of the box lid and card border, I found some files from deviantart and photoshopped them to suit the size of the box I was making.

The box was made of thick blue paper/card that I scored along all the folds. I joined it together with double sided tape and glue.



I asked my partner to send me her picture and using photoshop I actually put her face on the Witch/Wizard card. I used her Craftster name as her 'Witch' name.


(didn't think I should put my partner's pic without her permission   Wink )

On the back of the card I wrote a description about her using information from her swap questionnaire.



I wanted it to be something she could keep, so I made a felt chocolate frog. I will pop over to the Toys board and share the pattern there.



Hope you like it Smiley Let me know what you think!


::EDIT:: I found the box lid file on my computer but I can't figure out how to attach it. If you would like it, please PM me your email address and I will send it off to you.

The lid image replaces the lid from the template. If you can't figure out how to do it, I will try and make some instructions.

Thanks for your nice compliments lvl0rg4n and bananabanana Cheesy

Litina, if you do a google search for "harry potter chocolate frog box template" you will find something similar. That's all I did. Then you just choose the one that's right for you. I had to play around with the one I chose to suit the card and chocolate frog Smiley

I'd love a link for the file you used for the box if you are able. These would make awesome christmas things for my friends.

omg, I love this!!!  What a great idea!  Yours turned out so beautiful, like it came directly out of the world of Harry Potter.  I so want to make some of these for Friday.  ^_^
