We stick them on the wall, use them as bookmarks, throw them away or just use them to store old chewing gum. But some awesome individuals have gone the extra mile to make the most out of their old train tickets. Here are the 5 coolest things ever made from used tickets.

 

 

1. Landmarks

Artist Robert Bradford created scale models of St Paul’s Cathedral, Edinburgh Castle and the Blackpool Tower out of 115,000 used train tickets.
