Harry Potter Party Invitations
I recently found myself in need of Harry Potter Invitations. My grandson is a huge Harry Potter fan. When he told us he wanted that as the theme for his 10th Birthday Party we went all out. Though I saw many invitations online, I decided to make my own. I wanted to make them look as much as the Hogwarts acceptance letter as I could.
Harry Potter Invitations Step 1 Letterhead:
The first step was finding the Hogwarts emblem. This was easy all I had to do was was a search on Google and shrink it to desired size.
Next I used the font 4 Privet Drive for the letterhead. Under the Hogwarts emblem I wrote: Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry with size 14. Next line: HEADMASTER ALBUS DUMBLEDORE size 8. Next Line: ORDER OF MERLIN, FIRST CLASS. GRAND SORC., CHF. WARLOCK,
SUPREME MUGWUMP ,INTERNATIONAL. CONFED. OF WIZARDS size 8.
End result of the letterhead:
Harry Potter Invitations Step 2 Letter body:
For the body of the letter I used the font Magik size 18. I wrote
We are pleased to inform you that you have been accepted at
Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
We will be having a special pre-term Birthday celebration
in honor of our newest (Age) year old Headboy,
Please Join us on (Date).
If you must contact by muggle phone dial (Name & Phone)
or muggle email (Email).
Wizard’s and Witch’s work robes and hats are optional.
End result of the letter body:
Harry Potter Invitations Step 3 The signature :
This step is easy. Just add Minerva McGonagall in the Dear Mr. Potter font size 26. Next line write Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry
Headmaster: Albus Dumbledore, D.Wiz, X.j.(sorc.), S,of Mag.Q. in Garamond size 11.
End result of the Signature:
After printing them I used a paper towel that had been dipped in a mixture of coffee grounds and water. Set them in an oven set at 250 degrees for 5 minutes. You can use a lighter and scorch the edges of the paper if you choose. We then rolled them and tied them with a ribbon to look like a scroll.
