After all this time? Always

I love Harry Potter. And when I say that I really mean it haha. And I like to take every opportunity to try and combine all things HP, with my passion for papercraft. I made a very large and dimensional shadow box the other day to enter into LawnFawns awesome lawnfawnatics challenge. And the theme was Favorite place. So of course I had to roll with The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. I used all Lawn Fawn stamps and dies for this project.

I had to make a custom housing for this big guy. So I cut two panels for my base from cardstock at 5 x 7.25 inches. I scored and folded the cardstock at 4 and 7 inches. Using the little 1/4 inch tab to attach them together with that red sticky double sided tape. (I can’t remember what it’s called.) I used a stitched frame to cut out the opening panel and I trimmed and scored a piece of striped paper to line the inside.

I then hand drew the little signs to fit over the village shops to make my street magical. I had so much fun customizing all these little images. I knew it would have to have layers to fit all the buildings and to give the illusion of dimension since all of the stamps are not the same size. And I’m so happy with how it came out. 
All of my coloring was done with copic markers and Wink of Stella glitter pens. I heat embossed the roller coaster on the very back panel to show the amusement park. And made a little aged banner to pop on front. That’s always my mini version of the Marauders Map.  I loved dressing up these little critters in their HP gear. 

I waited until the last day to enter my card, oops,  and was so excited when it was chosen to be featured. It’s always such an honor. Thank you for stopping by and hopefully I will have a flat version of this project to share soon.
