These Harry Potter floating book ornaments are for my daughter in law; she is a big HP fan. I followed a wonderful internet tutorial of how to make them. The only thing I changed is that my books have real HP book pages. I found mini printable HP books in Spanish and decided to use them instead of blank pages. I edited the tittles from Spanish to English, even when no one is going to read them.
I am happy of how they turn out but the flash reflections on the pictures are annoying.










 
This one is for my daughter. The book is the poem Los Zapaticos de Rosa (The Little Rose color Shoes) by Jos Mart (Cuban national hero, poet, writer, professor, journalist and translator). The poem teaches a great life lesson to children, compassion and empathy, to share and to understand that there are others kids less fortunate. In Cuba this poem is taught in elementary school and most Cuban children know it by heart (I still can recite the whole poem). The floating book have the whole poem.
I keep the tradition to give each child in the family his/her own copy of this book.



This one is for my sons girlfriend, is a picture of her beloved dog Shasta.

Adorable ornaments.
I was intrigued by Los Zapaticos de Rosa, so I found it in English at http://hossanna-kim-pandelios-spector.com/
What a sweet little tale!

Thank you, I am happy how the ornaments turn out.
steiconi, that translation of Los Zapaticos de Rosa is very accurate; the poem has 36 quatrains, containing 144 lines and was first published in 1889 in New York.
Jose Marti was exile at the time in New York City, where he published a monthly children magazine: La Edad de Oro (The Golden Age).

These are so sweet.  My nine-year old's face would just explode with glee, if I made these.
