Bookmark: Hogwarts Express travel ticket
Imagine discovering a one-way travel ticket on the Hogwarts Express, inside the copy of Harry Potter that you found on the library shelves.
I created these bookmarks using “Hogwarts Express Ticket.jpg,” a file from harrypotter.wikia.com. Inside a fancy scroll-work border, it reads, “London to Hogwarts for one-way travel. Platform 9 3/4. Issued subject to the Rules and Regulations of the Hogwarts Express Railway Authorities.” I then added a stub (for what’s a ticket without a stub?) and an issue number to add further realism.
The stub bears the official-sounding phrase, copied from a mundane ticket, “Stub to be retained for audit.” The sheet yields four bookmarks.
