Potions Book

© Aly


One spiral or marble notebook
Decorative paper (enough to cover front and back covers)
Glue stick
Exacto knife


Flip paper upside down. Trace each cover once.

Cut out the paper using the scissors.

Adhere paper onto covers. The marble notebook allows you to line up your paper better due to the binding strip.

Clean up any excess paper hanging over edges by opening the book and cutting away the paper with an exacto knife.

Optional- Use a pen to title your book with a fitting font. A silver paint pen works well.

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!
