Here we are again and we’re one day closer to my favorite holiday as we continue on with 31 Days of Halloween!
As I mentioned when I shared the Cauldron Cakes on Thursday, in the Way Back of 2003, my daughter, now 20 years old, had a magical, Harry Potter-themed birthday party.
Time flies, eh?
I thought today would be the perfect time to share another craft from that fun day: Wizard Trading Cards!

While not strictly Halloween, no young witch or wizard can resist the lure of a chocolate frog and Wizard Trading Cards!
These are simple and inexpensive to make. There’s no fancy cutting or expensive supplies required. Just grab a sheet of ready-to-print business cards and you’re good to go! Business cards are U.S. Letter Size (8 1/2″ x 11″). If you don’t have access to that, simply print on card stock and cut to size.
These make great party favors, especially if you know your Halloween crowd are Harry Potter fans!
I used candy molds and milk chocolate chips to make the Chocolate Frogs. Yum!
The cards are those wizards that Harry and Ron come across on their frog cards on the Hogwarts Express during their first trip to Hogwarts! I paraphrased historical information found online, except for Dumbledore, his listing comes directly from Sorcerer’s/Philosopher’s Stone.
These were made WAY back in 2003 and I have unfortunately lost the source list for the information and artists as well as the original editable document, which I would have very much like to have shared. My greatest apologies for this, if there is any way I can recreate the source list, it will be attached to the file at a future date.
Even so, I hope you will enjoy and perhaps make your own set of Wizard Trading Cards!
Are you making projects from 31 Days of Halloween? Share your photos with my flickr group! There will be a fun surprise after Halloween for one lucky winner!
Love the wizard cards!! Thanks so much, how very clever of you.
