Here’s a book crime I’m guilty of: never having a bookmark. And when I do, they’re usually something strange like an empty chocolate bar wrapper (honestly) or a receipt. For example, my current bookmark of choice is a Pokemon card (Pikachu if you’re curious).
So this weekend I thought I’d spend a little bit of time and design some bookmarks, mostly just for something fun to do. Then I thought, hey, I could show some Slytherin love with my bookmark. Once I thought abolut it a little longer, I decided to make a few for each house so I could share them as part of Harry Potter month too! So, that’s exactly what I did.
They’re very simple (I’m definitely not an artistic or photoshop talented person), but I like them anyways 😉 They’re all the same design – house coloured with the Pottermore logo – and for each house I’ve got one blank, and three with quotes or traits related to the House. (Partial logic for only using one design is that you could print them back to back if you wanted, which appeals to me more than having a white or mismatched reverse side)
Today I’m sharing the Gryffindor and Hufflepuff bookmarks. I’d print them out and take a photo of them in use only my printer has decided it wants to print in black or white only, so that doesn’t work so well! You should be able to download them from the link below and print them straight out. Obviously if you want them to be a bit more durable you could print them onto card rather than paper, which is what I’d recommend.
The Gryffindor ones are a bit dark on my screen, but they’re clear when I print them out, even in greyscale, so I’m hoping they should work. If not let me know and I’ll see if I can adapt them.
