Do you remember Cath’s column all about maps in the January/February 2012 issue of Paper Crafts? No? Maps were used in a variety of clever ways to create sweet cards and gifts.
Do you need a little refresher? Alright. Here’s my favorite from the column! Take a look at this awesome flower with petals cut out from an atlas! I’m not gonna lie. I bought a new road atlas when I went home to Texas for Christmas but made sure to keep my old road atlas for projects such as this cute one! (The atlas wasn’t of much use at that point anyway; New Mexico was totally missing!)
Well, since Cath explored the world of maps back then, we’ve seen maps in paper-crafted projects all over! From backgrounds to embellishments to borders, alpha stickers, and so much more, it’s grown into quite a big part of the paper-crafting world!
And we’ve finally featured maps in the September/October 2012 issue in our Maptastic! feature.
This is our feature opener! How cute! And supplies and instructions for this cute little decoration can be found here.
What a great idea this piece is! And you could use this idea for whatever state or country you call home. Do you have a copy of the issue, but this project doesn’t seem familiar? This frame is only found in digital issues of the magazine. If you have a print subscription, make sure you access your digital issue to view this exclusive content!
Last but not least, my personal favorite. My little country-lovin’ heart is just pricked by this sweet little cowboy on his trusty steed. Too cute!
