On this Saturday morning we have a Harry Potter DIY Hogwarts Acceptance Letter project to have some fun creating!
I’ve also included a Linn’s Stamps News article from last month about the Harry Potter stamps – “Inspector General report accuses USPS of selling stamps to Royal Mail below face value”.
Let’s start with the Linn’s Stamps News article first.
Linn’s Stamps News – “Inspector General report accuses USPS of selling stamps to Royal Mail below face value”
The Linn’s Stamps News June 21, 2016 Postal Updates article begins with “The Stamp Fulfillment Services office agreed to sell Royal Mail thousands of United States Harry Potter stamps at a 35 percent discount in violation of a United States Postal Service law prohibiting the sale of U.S. stamps to anyone at less than face value.
The U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General charged in a report dated June 15 that the Kansas City, Mo., facility made the sales decision without the approval or knowledge of officials in Washington…” <-End of excerpt
The article continues with more details. Thanks to my local stamp club friend Jimmy who talked about this article at a recent meeting!
Harry Potter DIY Hogwarts Acceptance Letter
Over at Potter Crafts there is a DIY blog post on making Hogwarts Letter complete with a YouTube video. The step-by-step blog post article draws from their YouTube which I’ve included here.
There are components from this DIY project that can easily be reused in other projects. Love the step-by-step on making your wax seal using a potato. It includes having you draw your sketch and it then being etched onto the potato.
The blog post includes a link to envelope template. And there are pdf links for printing off the female and male version of the acceptance letter too.
Thank you for joining me today. Wishing you fun making your own Harry Potter DIY Hogwarts Acceptance Letter today!
