After my first Wuthering Heights Book Box I decided to make one especially for me and what better than Harry Potter ?
Firstly, I decided my box would be Hogwarts themed and that it would be based on hermione s much quoted Hogwarts – a history.
Although, there are many variations of the book cover on the Internet thanks to many creative types there was none I particularly felt “gelled” with my idea.
So I decided to design my own using various resources online –
The Hogwarts Crest was courtesy of
H P Lexicon which is an amazing fan site full of Harry Potter magic .
The fonts all came free from Font Space.
I used Magik for the title and Aqueline for the author.

Information from http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Hogwarts_School_of_Witchcraft_and_Wizardry
Established around the 9th or 10th century, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardary is considered to be one of the finest magical institutions in the wizarding world.
and lastly the book spine
All this was to be the binding of my Harry Potter Book Box – once I had designed these I was able to print them off and cover my “book”.
To do the same all you need is :
• a book box
• a cover design , back cover and spine design (you are more than welcome to use these ) – you can find an assortment of ideas and brilliant creations on my Harry Potter pinterest board.
Just simply print , stick and glue and you have the main book box covered !
Now onto the inside …..
