This butterbeer lip balm will have you tasting that butterbeer flavor all day long. I don’t know a better way to feel potter-tastic than that. So whenever you find yourself wishing for the sweet treats in hogsmeade, just pull out your butterbeer lip balm and picture yourself at the three broomsticks with harry, ron, and hermione.
What you need:
- 1 tablespoon beeswax (You can use either the grated stuff or pellets. I usually order mine online.)
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 5–7 butterscotch chips (found in the baking aisle at your local supermarket)
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil (found in the organic section of your local supermarket)
- 1 small bowl
- 1 spoon
- 3–5 lip balm containers (I like the little clear pots so you can see your lip balm, but you can also use the clear tubes.)
HOW TO MAKE IT:
Add the beeswax, honey, butterscotch chips, and coconut oil to a small bowl.
Melt the ingredients in the microwave in 15-second increments. Pull out in between and stir the mixture with a spoon. When everything is melted together, with no lumps, you’re ready to move on to the next step.
When your ingredients have all melted together, slowly pour your mixture into the lip balm containers and set aside to cool for 15–20 minutes or until the mixture has hardened.
Once the mixture has hardened, put the lid on your Butterbeer Lip Balm and start using immediately! If you’d like, you can give the others out to all your friends or store in a cool cabinet for up to 6 months!
From School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up—What happens when serious crafters combine with devoted Harry Potter fans? Cue this well-organized batch of ideas for the creation of Potter-related items. The book begins with wearables such as tie-dyed T-shirts (in the school colors of Hogwarts, of course), and accessories, and each chapter takes on a different aspect of the series, including characters and related objects. Directions for making a "sorcerer's stone paperweight," "dementor soap," a "lumos/nox light switch," and "nargles for the yard" encourage the use of themed crafts throughout the house, as gifts, or as unique school supplies. While clever and clearly explained, the ideas presented here are not for novices or young children but rather for more mature and experienced crafters. Additionally, specialized material (e.g., sheets of Shrinky Dinks, a glue gun, charcoal capsules) may not be readily available and could become costly. VERDICT Recommended for the sophisticated crafter who doubles as a Harry Potter fan.—Maria B. Salvadore, formerly at District of Columbia Public Library
"The projects are generally easy to make and use supplies that are readily available. That first generation of Potter fanatics is hitting their 30s, and their thirst for 1990s nostalgia is unquenchable." --Library Journal
"Creative projects plus easy-to-follow directions with excellent photographs make this a creative, must-own book for Harry Potter fans like us." --Imagination Soup
"With no help from J.K. Rowling, author Jamie Harrington takes some of the elements of the books and creates crafts." --Austin American-Statesman
"You might want to double dip at the bookstore, because this month has also brought America The Unofficial Guide To Crafting The World Of Harry Potter. Harrington serves up dozens of Potterific ideas, from shirts you can tie-dye into house colors (yes, even Slytherin) to pencil wands." --SheKnows
"Whether your kid is obsessed with Harry Potter, hasn't read the books yet, or has only just gotten into them, this book is sure to be one of their new favorites." --POPSUGAR Moms
"A Harry Potter crafts book that renews your faith in magic and hot glue guns. Get them doing more than zoning out to the first eight movies, with the brand new The Unofficial Guide to Crafting the World of Harry Potter. Jamie Harrington has put together 30 clever crafts for kids of all ages into a beautifully produced book, that help reinforce a belief in the power of magic, good vs. evil, and Modge Podge." --Cool Mom Picks
"These crafts are doable--no power tools necessary and most of the crafts are made from everyday, inexpensive items." --Florida Today/USA Today Network

If you're not an experienced crafter and have kids crazy for Harry Potter, then this book is perfect. It's also good for kids who are into crafting. If you're an experienced crafter, this is not the book for you.
