This is the Triwizard Cup. I warned you.
Those that don’t know what that means probably don’t care, but don’t leave, it’s cool, I’m cool, we’re cool. Cool.
For this weeks Day Tripper craft I had strict guidelines, which I gave myself. I didn’t realise how hard it would be to create a Harry Potter themed item without it appearing to be Harry Potter, which sounds mental, but that’s what I wanted to do. I didn’t want to do traditional colours nor something obvious, so even those who don’t know Harry Potter recognise the ‘brand’. I did want it to represent a house, but also I didn’t, you know, life can be so hard sometimes (I joke!). But I got there in the end, and what makes this craft so wonderful to me is the secret! Oh the secret, you make me feel like a little kid again.
So this is the back of the picture. Shhh! Oi, I said shush! Thank you.
What’s the secret compartment for?
For our names to be put into because it’s the Triwizard Tournament! And for whoever finds it to put their name in. (I am aware I didn’t do the Goblet of fire, which is what the names actually go in, but it doesn’t have such a pretty outline.) And yes, Glenda put ‘Ravenpuff’ as her house, because she couldn’t decide, even though Pottermore put her in Ravenclaw. Sophie thought it sounded like a sexual orientation.
I also did the frame myself.
Anyway, this is enough geeking out for one day. Come back tomorrow for Day Tripper #4, and see where I left this craft.
Over and out, Emily x
