Print off the template for the correct sized paper.

Carefully cut out the template with a pair of scissors.

Place printed side down and fold in all of the side folds to the lines marked on the printed side.

Figure 1

Open out the folds and open up the sheet the other way to the lines marked.

Fold flat again and then begin to fold up properly.

Fold the sides in so that the As and Bs are near each other.

Fold the outside edges of the box over the sides.

Figure 2

Putting the foot of the stapler inside the box so that the smooth part of the staple is showing on the outside, secure the box with one staple in the middle of the box in each side.

Fold in the top side flaps, and then fold the top sides over, making sure to crease the edge well so that no glue will be needed.

Carefully close the box and write the name of the person you are giving it to on top in the space provided.

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.
