Crafts with Maps

I found multiple old maps in my aging car (120k miles and pushing 10 years old) that luckily don’t serve their intended purpose anymore thanks to iPhone navigation. But fortunately, I’m putting these maps to good use with a little cutting, pasting, pretty paper, and simple frames. Here’s what I’ve made this far out of the maps. I originally made simple hearts out of the location of weddings, but recently started adding the invite for a more personal touch. I also made two for baby gifts out of the birth state of the newborn. I think they’ve turned out pretty cute for a DIY project.

It’s a perfect Sunday afternoon project and I’m looking forward to making more as the celebrations keep coming! Here are some in progress pics and one wrapped up and ready for a bridal shower!

Now back to other important things, like cheering on the Vikes!
