The world of Harry Potter offers an extensive amount of inspiration for paper crafting. From scrapbook pages to party invitations, Harry Potter and his world can be used to decorate any type of paper item. Look for commercial Harry Potter paper supplies in a craft or big box store, or make your own using on-hand materials.

Use parchment paper and a fine marker to make your own version of the Marauder's Map, first introduced in "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban." The map features a lot of detail that can be hand-drawn or computer generated. Origami techniques can be used to complete the map with folds. Use the map as an art piece, or colour copy it for use as a party invitation or favour.
Journals and books play a big role in Harry Potter's universe. Create your own journal by covering a pre-made blank book with scrapbook paper and Harry Potter images cut from magazines and books. Theme your journal around a specific book, character or magical item, and you'll always have a place to keep your wizarding notes.
Combine thin strips of paper and glue to create a paper mache wand. Begin with a dowel, and build up your wand with layers of paper and glue. Once your paper mache wand is dry, paint and embellish it to suit your personal tastes. This is an ideal craft project to do with kids or a reading group because every wand will be different, just as the wands in the Harry Potter series are.
Hogwarts Acceptance Letter
Use parchment and a quill or calligraphy pen to create your own Hogwarts acceptance letter. Model the text after the letters shown in the Harry Potter series, and roll into a tube when dry. Seal with a red wax stamp, and your letter is ready to deliver -- via owl post, of course. This project could be an accompaniment to a Harry Potter-themed gift, or it can be used as a party invitation.
