Harry Potter Birthday Layout

Hello! Samantha here with you today. I’m back at it with more Harry Potter scrapbooking. It’s no secret that I’m a bit of a Potter fanatic, so I love finding new ways to combine papers and stickers from the Harry Potter collection to create something magical like this Harry Potter birthday layout.

Supplies: Marbelous 12″ Paper Pad, Harry Potter Icons Foil Paper, Harry Patter Chibi Washi Tape Set, Harry Potter Chibi 3D Sticker, Harry Potter Chibi Faux Enamel Stickers, Birthday 3D Stickers

Every year my husband and I make my kids’ birthday cakes. We’re by no means professional, but we always have a fun time trying to make something to fit the theme they request. For my oldest son’s 11th birthday, he requested a Harry Potter cake. Of course, I was super excited about the request! I usually make the cake and whip up the frosting, and my husband does the detail/drawing work. I loved how this Harry Potter cake turned out, and so did our son!

I like to mix, match, and layer multiple patterned papers when creating a layout. I loved the Chibi themed Harry Potter Icon paper for this layout. The Chibis just seem to fit a kid’s birthday theme. For more patterned paper to layer with the Chibi paper, I reached for my Marbelous paper pad. The greens, blues, and golds in Marbelous pair beautifully with the Harry Potter collection.

I had lots of Harry Potter embellishments to chose from. My new favorites are the Chibi 3D stickers. They have foil, and glitter, and are just so stinking cute. I also used some Chibi faux enamels, washi tape, and a birthday themed 3D stickers.

Harry Potter Washi Cards

Hello! Samantha here with you. Today I have a trio of Harry Potter washi cards to share. While I’m focusing on Harry Potter today (because I love all things Harry Potter), you could easily recreate these cards with any of Paper House’s amazing washi tapes.

Supplies: Harry Potter Chibi Scenes Washi Tape Set, Harry Patter Chibi Washi Tape Set, Harry Potter House Crests Washi Tape Set, Harry Potter Quidditch Washi Tape Set, Harry Potter House Crests Faux Enamel Stickers, Harry Potter Cardstock Stickers, Harry Potter Chibi 3D Sticker

If you’ve ever looked at a set of washi tape and wished it could be patterned paper, this is your chance! The house crest card was the first card I thought of with the Harry Potter Washi. Paired with the House Crest Faux Enamel stickers, you have quite a stunning card. The best part about this card is that you can customize it to the recipient’s Hogwarts House. I made this one for a Ravenclaw. I also added a little sorting hat detail in the upper left hand corner.

For this second card, I also striped the washi tape at a diagonal, but instead of two different washi tapes (like the house crest card) I used four. Honestly, I couldn’t decide whether I should use the Harry Potter Chibi Scenes Washi Tape Set or the Harry Patter Chibi Washi Tape Set, so I decided to just use both. I love the final result. For the embellishment on this card, I used a cardstock sticker.

For this last card, I used the Harry Potter Quidditch washi tape set to create a horizontal stripe pattern. Photos don’t do this card justice. The gold foil on the black quidditch washi really pops in person. For the embellishment on this card I used a Harry Potter Chibi 3D sticker.

I chose a variety of different types of embellishments so you could see that everything from cardstock stickers, to faux enamels, to 3D stickers will all work on washi tape cards.

I can’t wait to mail these out to some Harry Potter loving friends!
