Map Crafts

After completing my map projects last week, I found a few more brilliant ways to turn maps from blah to TADA!  These ones, I came across on Etsy:

These are seating cards for wedding receptions. The name of the guest is printed in front of the card and the corresponding table number is at the back. They also double as book markers after the wedding.

Here are stickers made from maps with calligraphy, too!

Aren't these attractive? These are map star books. When opened, they look like this:

TADA!

And finally, cut-outs from maps {and very precise, I might add} that can be used for scrap booking or card making. I can just see cut-outs of trains, planes and automobiles to illustrate a vacation. See you tomorrow!

    Congratulations for your blog, I put it in my favorites.
    It is always refreshing and encouraging finding people who knows the importance of recycling and do it so graciously.
