I’ve gone a little map crazy at the moment. I am truly obsessed with decorating with vintage maps and globes but have found that they are incredibly expensive. There is an alternative though. What do you do with the old travel maps that helped you find your way in a new city? Mine just get stuffed in a box that eventually goes in the loft only to be opened when I have lost my passport and can’t think of anywhere else to look. It’s such a shame because they hold those memories of discovering a new place: that little bistro you found when wondering off the beaten track, the endless arguments of left and right and the thrill of realising that you are going in the right direction for once! Why not display them as art and relive those memories every time you walk past them?
Why not create a map memory board?
Create a map scrapbook?
Or cover your Geography/travel scrapbooks with old road maps?
Or create this little keepsake with your maps, subways stubs photos etc?
Or display them and other objects in a shadow box?
Or how about just creating a simple collage?
