Here's how to create a Harry Potter Monster Book of Monsters:

STEP ONE

Download, print and cut out the Harry Potter Monster Book of Monsters patterns below. My book blank is four-inches by six-inches by one-inch, but you can use any book, by adjusting the patterns to fit. Trace the Monster Book cover pattern onto Hot Chocolate Felt and then cut out with scissors. TIP: cut inside the traced lines for a clean, finished project.

To give the texture of fur, gently sand the surface of the felt with twisting motions. This will allow you to use simple supplies like felt without purchasing expensive faux fur.

STEP TWO

Trace two sets of Monster teeth onto Lemon Frost Felt and then cut out with scissors. Remember this is a Monster Book, so accuracy is not important (don't you love that? I do!)

For the forked tongue, trace the shape onto Red Felt with a permanent marker and then cut out with scissors. This project is so easy to make with the kiddos!

STEP THREE

Using a glue gun and glue sticks attach the teeth to the top and bottom edge of the cover of the book. I use the tips of my scissors to press the felt into the warm glue to ensure good adhesion. Liquid glue would also work for this project, you just have to wait for it to dry. I am an impatient crafter, so I love my glue gun.

Open the book to a random page and attach the base of the tongue to that page. You can also attach the tongue to the inside of the front or back cover OR leave it loose and use it as a bookmark.

STEP FOUR

Starting at one edge, attach the Hot Chocolate Felt cover to the outside of the Monster Book in small sections, using a glue gun. This will ensure that there is good adhesion.

Wrap the cover around the book, gluing as you go and then secure the opposite edge. Since my book is one-inch thick, I did not glue the spine, so the cover had room to allow the book to open and close.

STEP FIVE

To finish, attach four large wiggle eyes in random order on the top cover of the Harry Potter Monster Book of Monsters.

Harry Potter the Monster Book of Monsters

The Monster Book of Monsters, by Edwardus Lima, is a particularly vicious sentient textbook that is used in Care of Magical Creatures while Rubeus Hagrid (who thought the book's aggressive nature was amusing) was the Professor for that subject at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

The book is quite informative, but one usually finds it difficult to access the information within due to the book's unfortunate tendency to try and bite off the reader's fingers. The only way to subdue the book is to stroke its spine, upon which the book opens placidly. source: Harry Potter Fandom website
