    Hello there! So I need inspiration to make some Harry Potter movie props. So I have worked on Gringots saving case. Pictures when it is ready. Um... maybe you sould know that I am an amateur making these stuff, so something easy, but a little bit challenging. Thank's to those how help!

    The easiest (well, depending on how detailed you get) would be to make a custom wand for yourself out of a doweling rod or similar piece of wood. At it's simplest design, all you need for that is the wood, a file, and some sandpaper.

    Since you seem to be a bit experienced with binding and such in making the Gringotts book, you could always try some more complicated paper props (ie: books) too.

    In any case, good luck and welcome!

    There are a few different ways to make books, it all depends on what book you want to replicate and how much work you want to put into it. If you have an example of a book, I can check it out and give you some tips.

    Got it! I'm about to (literally) run out the door right now, so I'll write up some tips for you when I return and send them via Private Message so I don't clutter up your thread anymore.

    I wrote some tutorials for some of the potter books I put together. Maybe it might help some:

    I was thinking about doing a full calligraphied set of books. It would take forever, but damn if it wouldn't be cool. Especially if they were full leather bound, and aged paper.
