When reading through it the other day, one of the articles really caught my eye: X marks the Spot. Discover mapping Possibilities.
I love maps, whomever came up with the idea needs a medal!
Being super trendy these days, I love how maps are being crafted into all areas of life, from the craft room, to art, to functional furniture and much more.

I find them so inspiring!
We might not be able to create amazing art like they did but there are some fabulous other ideas incorporating maps into our everyday life.

This is a page I made for the X Marks the Spot article, using maps in the form of a big world stamp from Cocoa Daisy kits, and itty bitty paper aeroplane accents made from map paper.
And for some more fun from the internet which might spark a new craft project, or be used in a current one.

How about some map wall art from Fontmap. The great thing is they have maps of all continents or states from all over the world.
