    May 29, 2011, 12:28 PM - Harry Potter Wand Boxes #1

    I'm in the process of making several wands for friends (pics pending) and I after looking through a billion threads on here - I'm just looking to see if anyone has reference pics for the screen used boxes from Harry Potter. The Noble Collection ones are ok - but I want to see what the real deal labels and textures look like up close.

    Cheers!

    From what I recall, those Ollivander's stickers weren't actually "on screen" but just used as a COA type thing to guarantee authenticity for giveaways and contests. I had a large scan/photo of one somewhere, but I can't make any guarantees I still have it. (I'll take a look when I can.) Hinkypunk's HP thread in the Paper Props forum has a good "close enough" version too...

    Yeah, the oval sticker is just on the hand-out boxes. There were so many different sizes of boxes, you really can get away with doing what you want. Here are some boxes I did in the style of the movie boxes:

    Krum stunt wand (and box). Just to clarify, the wand box isn't for Krum's wand. (And no, this isn't my display.):

    There could be one or two styles of boxes out there.

    What is typically on the side of the boxes ? Is it the measurement of the wand ?

    I'd love to see what comes of this. I'm going to be doing a set of wands and boxes later this summer. Would be great to have some good references!

    Just crazy stuff, usually alchemical characters and whatnot. Harry's wand has 643 on the box.

    The sky is the limit on wand boxes, I even noticed on the 1st movie in the wand shop there were round tube like wand containers with tassles coming out of them behind Olivander in a couple of scenes. Here is one of mine. Please post your pics, love to see them when they are finished.

    HOLY CRAP!!!! HeirOfOlivander! I've been trying to get in touch you FOREVER!!!! I want to get some wands from you and I am more than willing to pay.
    Related to this thread: I've been wanting to make some wand boxes as well, my question is, what would you even make them out of? What kind of cardboard do you use and where do you get it? Where can you get a nice sponge for the inside. How can I texture the outside? (I would like to have several different textures)

    I have several I use as case-fillers! They're a little short for wands, though. Nice boxes, Heir -- I have a prop box and then a really nice box made by Fyberdyne. The rest of mine are Noble Collection or my miniatures.

    The boxes I'm just gonna construct from priority boxes. It's a very simple design and construction. I made one about 10 years ago from a large shoe box. Super easy to do.

    My real issue is finding good textured paper that is large enough to cover one of those boxes. Went to Michaels and all their sheets were much too short.

    I will certainly post pics once I get cracking. i have made around 6 wands so far - so I should start posting pics. I'm just afraid the people I have made them for might see and it would spoil the surprise.

    Would love to see more wand boxes !

    Just look up wallpaper stores in your area. If you go to some of the little personal shops you can get BIG samples, they will have a roll open that you can cut a piece from to take home for a look see and try out. Or some big warehouse discounter that sells it either by the foot or by the pound so you don't have to by tons more than you need or want.

    The pre-pasted stuff is kinda heavy and you really wouldn't want to be putting water ladened paste on cardboard I don't think, but you could give it a try would be nice if the moisture doesn't cause the cardboard to disintegrate. Non pre-pasted is becoming harder to find, but there should be some available.

    Apart from that, might try a "real" art supply store, where they would have bigger (and most lovely) papers, howbeit, way more expensive. But you know the old trick--find it, feel it, nick the name/numbers, then go looking for it cheaply online! (yeah, I know retailers hate us for doing that, but, hey, free enterprise and all that....)

    Thanks Shylaah- wound up using a textured fabric instead - it had some stretch to it - worked like a charm.

    I will be hopefully posting pics of the wands and box soon.

    So did we conclude if the box did indeed have an Olivander's emblem on it in the movie or now ?
