Wand bed tutorial by PraeclarusWands Wand bed tutorial by PraeclarusWands
Edit: I've resubmitted this because I changed the font. The original was done using Papyrus (yuck) and that was before I knew it was one of the "fonts to avoid at all costs" so it's fixed now.

~JtDHM asked for a tutorial for the wand bed in response to this [link] work in progress pic, so here it is!

Quite a lot of people have complimented the wand boxes I make, but I won't be able to make a tutorial for the whole thing. It just doesn't illustrate well with pictures. This step is do-able though.

I hope it makes sense :)

If you make anything using this, I would appreciate it if you would please link back to this tutorial if you post a deviation of your project, and comment here. I'd like to see what you all have made too!~

Unfortunately, I don't speak German myself, but if you wanted to do your own translation, please feel free! (And then, if you send it to me, I will put it in the description for anyone else who might need it.)

Hey! I'm done! Here it is:


1. Schneide ein rechtwinkliges Rechteck aus Wellpappe oder ungeknickten Umzugskartons aus. Benutze ein Messer um Schlitze an den zukünftigen Ecken zu machen. Sei aber vorsichtig, dass du nicht ganz durchschneidest, sondern nur einritzt.
2. Falte das Rechteck zu einer Schachtel und klebe sie. Es ist egal, welches Klebeband du benutzt, so lange es stark ist. Ich verwende Paketband.
3. Schneide zwei kleine Rechtecke aus, um die Enden der Schachtel zu bedecken. Das kann auch in Schritt 1 integriert werden, wenn du ein Stück Karton hast, das groß genug ist. Ich hatte kein solches Stück.
4. Lege den Zauberstab, oder für was auch immer du die Box machst, auf die Unterseite und ziehe einen Umriss, der ein bisschen größer sein soll, als das Objekt ist.
5. Schneide den Umriss aus. Es muss nicht perfekt sein, aber ein zauberstabförmiges Loch hinterlassen. Die andere Seite muss ganz bleiben. Entferne das Ausgeschnittene.
6. Lege Stoff über die Schachtel auf der Seite, auf der das Loch ist. Lebe den Zauberstab auf den Stoff und in das Loch. Sichere den Zauberstab. (Ich habe Kordel benutzt)
7. Wickle den Stoff vorsichtig um die Schachtel und sei vorsichtig, damit es schön aussieht. Befestige den Stoff.
8. Wickle die Enden so, als würdest du ein Geburtstagsgeschenk verpacken und befestige sie.


I've also translated your Owl post form. Should I post it as devation?

wouldn't fabric glue be more secure than tape?
PraeclarusWands Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
That's a brilliant idea... I don't know why I didn't think of that before! I've been using staples instead of tape for a while now, but looks like I'll have to go out and buy some fabric glue!

thanks for sharing. I was layering foam (which takes much longer and is more expensive).
