DIY: City map paper cut out

DIY + How To

It’s rare you find someone who doesn’t at least find fascination with, if not flat out love, a map. They’re so informative; they’re proof of where we’ve been and where we’re going. More than that, they’re pretty good-looking! They come in all sizes, shapes, colors, varieties and of course, locations. One of the fun things about maps is collecting ones of all the places you’ve been, and all the places you want to be!

When we came across this DIY project on how to cut out a city map out of paper, we knew we had to share. Wouldn’t this make a great art piece for your home? Or a gift for someone? You could do one for every city you’ve visited and make a cool hanging grid of art pieces or a fun collage of them on the wall. The instructions are gleefully simple. First spotted on Apartment Therapy and via Just Crafty Enough.

Would you do this project? What cities would you cut out?
