Yes it is HARRY POTTER DIY time AGAIN.. a few weeks ago, we shared some printable Harry Potter Mini Books – perfect for die hard Harry Potter fans, dolls’ bookshelves or wizardly mini writing. Today we have some more DIY Harry Potter Potions Notebooks by the lovely Jenny Chan at the Origami Tree. Jenny and I have done many lovely YouTube Collaborations before – in fact, she made some brilliant Snitch Mini Pens last time, that I think you will love too! A really lovely crafter to discover and follow on YouTube.
And as I publish this in the great “Christmas Crafting season”.. wouldn’t these mini books make the most ADORABLE Harry Potter Christmas Ornaments?!?!? Hang them on a little ribbon and pop them into your tree! A fabulos Paper Christmas Ornament if ever I saw one!

How to make a Harry Potter Potions Notebook
So on to the DIY Harry Potter Potions book!! Now we love the clever use of recycled materials and a hot glue gun. In fact a hot glue gun is essential for many Harry Potter DIYs (we used one to make our Harry Potter Wands a while back too). So it is definitely worth investing in one if you love Harry Potter DIYs!!
