Map Letters

So this is a craft I’ve wanted to do for a while and lucky me that a friends, who likes to travel as much as me, birthday came up. So I made him a map letter that was a mash up of the countries he likes to travel too and the state he grew up in.  I think something like this would look stellar on a bookshelf.

So I started at Joannes with a Coupon and picked out the letter

(about 14 X 12 letter S).

I got a 50 cent 1970’s Atlas from the thrift store down the street

(its run by cute old church ladies)

Traced the letter and mashed up the state and countries.

I then took the maps, cut it out, lined them up and used Mod Podge to adhere the maps to the letter.

Isn’t it wonderful?! I have a great idea of how I’m going to use this in the living room.
