We were recently approached by clients who wanted a Harry Potter inspired gift for their daughter as a 21st birthday present. After being told that her favourite book was the Prisoner of Azkaban and that she could be described as a bit of a troublemaker, we decided on a Marauder’s Map inspired core.
For those of you that don’t know, the Marauder’s Map is used by Harry to sneak out of Hogwarts for a variety of mischievous tasks. It shows everybody within the grounds as a scroll and a set of footprints, making it easy to avoid problems such as teachers or poltergeists.
With this as our inspiration, we could create something based in the world she loves. We personalised the core by placing her name on the scroll and finished it with the iconic trail of footprints. The client loved it and the way it symbolised both her childhood love of Harry Potter, and the footprints leading to her future adventures.
Published with the kind permission of our client, the core featured is a reproduction and the name has been changed.
