DIY Harry Potter Themed Presents

New blogger goals — to get adopted by Ellen and Portia so they can help me have hundreds of sponsored giveaways prizes to send to all of you. I love giving out presents. Like for example, these gift boxes that I sent over to Di many months ago. She mentioned before on her blog that she loves Harry potter, so my challenge was to make all her presents look like they came straight from the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. What do you think, did I pass?

“We are pleased to inform you that you have been accepted
at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
Please find enclosed a list of all necessary books and equipment.”

You see that little Ollivander’s Wand box? I purposely had placed a mascara wand in it to go along with the concept. How cute is that! Oh and inside the Liquid Luck Potion tube is a brightening facial elixir… and in between the what-seems-to-be-a-flat-and-empty Platform 9 3/4 Ticket are some beauty sachet samples and a beauty card. Haha sorry, not sure why I get so excited over the little details of gift wrapping.

I’m really really happy with all of these, so I attached the printable images I got online on the links below in case any of you may want to use them. All you have to do is print the images over a sheet of white bond paper or crafting paper, then use them as your wrapping paper / decor. By the way don’t forget to share photos if you use any of these, would love to see them! Which one is your favorite?

  • Uhhh I can't even explain how I felt when I opened the box and I saw this! It was that moment where I didn't know what to do. I really didn't wanted to rip off the wrapping because it was sooo pretty ;__;
