map art.

I had a lot of maps saved from my semester abroad last year. I love maps and think they're some of the best momentos from the places I visited. I thought it would be awesome to find a way to display bits of them on my wall...
So I cut them up. At first I felt bad ruining them like this...
I handcut the strips sort of randomly, arranged them on 12x12 cardstock, and adhered the strips with tape runner. I cropped down the white paper just a little, backed it with gray cardstock, and stuck it in a 12x12 frame. Ta-da! Easy as that. I love that there's a little bit of some of my favorite places displyed on my wall now. (And the wood panelling really adds to the appeal too...)
