I've moved to Hello Paper Moon
Anyone who loves Harry Potter will love a Hogwarts acceptance letter for a gift. We have given these as birthday and graduation presents this year and plan on making a few for Christmas.
It does require a bit of time, but the cost is minimal, and the impact is amazing! Who wouldn't want one?
What you will need:
Paper (You could use regular paper and give it a tea/coffee effect or you could use parchment paper)
These Harry Potter Fonts found here. (You can pick and choose which ones you want. There is no wrong way to do this)
Address Labels (this is to print out a faux wax seal)

The first page of the acceptance letter says:
The envelope would have the following information:
Name: Mr. T. PAIN
Bedroom location: The cupboard in the kitchen
Street address: 123 Market Street
City, State: New York, New York
This, of course, is an example. You would put in your info. You could use a regular envelope or make one from paper using a tutorial like this.
Then you can copy and paste the seal below and print it out on an address label. Cut it out and use it on the back of the envelope as if it were a real wax seal.
I ended up wrapping the ones I made in twine. I think it gave an added layer of authenticity.
All right! Now here's your chance to win an acceptance letter for yourself or someone you love.
