It started as a Gift !
In October of 2010, I was laid off from my job as an interior design assistant. The holidays were approaching and I got inspired to make my gifts to save money. My younger sister is a MAJOR Harry Potter Fan!! So what better gift for her than something from the movies, The Hogwarts Acceptance Letter from the first movie!! My plan was to make it and address it to her and stick it in the tree for Christmas!!
I went to the store to get some supplies – typed up my version of the letter and adjusted the information to reflect my sister, along with the important bedroom location, like Harry potter’s “The Cupboard under the Stairs “I couldn’t find the correct envelope size, so I had to make that by hand, first printing the Hogwarts crest onto the paper then cutting an folding the envelope up. Once that was done the wax seal was the next challenge and what a challenge it was- there was wax everywhere. I figured it would be as easy as it was in the movies, but no…
I had to time it perfectly, from when the wax was cool enough, to when I could pour it on the paper without it seeping through the paper, to when I would press it with my hand made stamp. Yes, my HAND made stamp, out of an eraser… not an easy task, but once it was done it was very invigorating to have it, knowing I made it! The steps were online and like anything else took a few times of trial and error. Once I perfected the wax seal making process, I had completed her Christmas gift, and it was only HALLOWEEN!! I had to go two months with no mention of this to her, which wasn’t easy since we tell each other everything. In the end it was completely worth it!
About a week later I heard of Etsy and figured I would try it out with my New Harry Potter Letter! Within the first hour I made my first sale to Canada! Since then we have been selling letters and other Harry Potter inspired items!
