This was created for edelC in the Harry Potter Holiday Swap. In her questionnaire she requested some sort of banner or garland, so I created one out of book pages from an old copy of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.  (Not my own copy that I waited in line for, but rather one that I got from the 'free books' shelf at the YMCA.  The spine is broken, and it's not holding together well, so I took it to craft with last year, and am slowly working my way through the hundreds of pages!)  The 3 part design was bought from the Silhouette store online, and the paper pieces were all cut on my Silhouette, before being assembled with twine & sparkle yarn, as well as some large hole glass beads between each snowflake.  I was in a rush to post the package, so I didn't get a picture of it hung up on a wall.  There are 20 snowflakes all together on the strand, and I included a few extra of the cut pages and backing, without the light blue snowflake on them.  Each snowflake & frame is about 4" across, and the whole thing is a few yards long.



Here's a closeup, showing the text of some of the pages.  I think this is the chapter "A Place to Hide", after the Trio escape the Deatheaters who are crashing Bill & Fleur's wedding.
