downloads: Snapetease

Snapetease is a do-it-yourself refrigerator magnet originally created by Morgen Bell at Polychroma. At the original site you can download the potions master along with several outfits. At Morgen's prompting however, I've added to his wardrobe (this is known as egging me on).

Directions: Print out the .pdf of your choice onto glossy photopaper and spray with artist's fixative to prevent smudges. Adhere to a sheet of flexible, adhesive-backed magnet available at your local craft store. Cut out carefully with an exacto knife - some articles of clothing are more delicate than others. Hours of fun dressing up the professor (and alarming your acquaintances) await!

And so it came to pass that one year I was dared to make VillagePeople!Snape for the twelve days of Snapeteasemas. No, I don't know what I was thinking either. It is presented to you here in three parts:
