i'd like to order take out

JUST ADDED APRIL 13, 2010 - you can now download my Three Broomsticks label here.


Another Harry Potter sneak peek (I hope none of the people I'm going with to the movie see these posts - I love keeping stuff like this a surprise)

Since we'll be in line for hours I figured I'd take care of dinner for everyone.  Sitting on the concrete smashed between a million other people waiting to get into the same movie is not conducive to throwing a sit down dinner so I decided to go with the trusty brown bag meal, wizard style.
I have been working on these take out bags from The Three Broomsticks.  The labels are the same process as the Hogwarts Express tickets except that I tea dyed these after printing since they use all black ink.  The label above is just resting on the bag but the finished bags will have the label run through my Xyron machine so that they are secured on the bag really well - one of my pet peeves is labels that are stuck on in only a few spots - I have issues, I know.

Each bag will contain a sandwich, salad, chips, dessert and root beer (packaged as butterbeer) I'm working on packaging for each part of the meal - the chips are proving difficult.  I don't want the current packaging but I'm finding it hard to come up with my own packaging that will contain the chips and keep them from becoming to smashed while still giving me the ability to create what I want.  You'll have to stay tuned to see what I come up with (if I come up with anything)

I'm also working on some sweet treats straight from Honeydukes Sweetshoppe for after dinner. I have done some Honeydukes treats a few years ago for the last book (seen below) but I want to step it up a bit.  

As I get everything done I'll be sure to post pictures.

Thanks to those that have shared ideas - I always love hearing from others about party ideas.  If you know of any good blogs or websites with Harry Potter related party ideas let me know about those as well.  I feel like I have searched the internet high and low and seen every site but I'm sure there are some HP party sites out there that are alluding my muggle senses.

I better get back to work - only 4 days left.

I love the labels and designs, you are very creative! One little thing, Britain is spelled incorrectly on your bag label. You've inspired us to want to do a Harry Potter party. Thanks for sharing your great ideas.

Thanks for finding the typo - I am bad about catching my typos.

Hi! I just stumbled on your blog searching for Harry Potter designs, and I was wondering if there is a place on your site where you have created a downloadable version of your labels. I would love to know where, as I am planning a Harry Potter party. Thanks!

Hi there! What a fabulous party! We are having our Harry Potter Party in a few weeks. Any chance your downloads are still available or if I can purchase? Thanks so much!
