Owl Post Notecards

Sketch out and watercolor an owl on watercolor paper. There are some good tips on watercolor technique here. If you aren’t great at drawing owls, you can get a piece of flat watercolor paper, cut it to 8.5×11, put it in the bypass tray of a copying machine, and copy an image onto the paper. Just be sure to iron the image after so that the ink sets and doesn’t wash off when you add water with the paint!

Let the image dry and scan it into a computer program like Photoshop.

Set up the image to print properly on some blank notecards. These are available at office supply stores and some stationary and craft stores.

Please note that the patterns and tutorials you find here have been designed by Harry Potter fans all over the Internet. The authors alone hold the copyrights and licences to these patterns and tutorials, which means you CANNOT use their patterns to make something that you will sell to others afterwards. You can use them to make things for yourself. You can make some for your friends and ask them to pay for supplies. You CANNOT, however, ask them to pay you to do it as though you had created this pattern by yourself, or try to sell you crafts to a local store.

Think about it. Would you take a Prisoner of Azkaban book, photocopy it, put your name in big red letters on the front cover and try to sell it in your local library? The answer is, obviously, no. Well, selling crafts you have made but not designed would be just as bad!

Also note that the tutorials, recipes and patterns found here have not been tested and that The Leaky Cauldron’s Harry Potter Crafts section is not responsible for any mistakes they may contain. If you do find something wrong in one of them, however, please e-mail us to let us know.

On that note, Harry crafting to all!
