"I mean, if you're gonna get into the Evil League of Evil, you have to have a memorable laugh."
|Figure out what part of the map you want to use and cut map to size of pressboard pieces|
|Brush glue (we used Elmer's because we had it in the house)on to board evenly~not too thick not too thin, be sure to get along the edges|
|FYI Remember to allow for plenty of time to make glue hands, bonus points for not ripping and pulling it off intact|
|Lay the paper onto the gluey board all at once to avoid air bubbles or wrinkles~use a buddy to help if you need it|
|Then smooth the paper from the center out to the edges~don't press too hard over the same area or the paper may rip|
|They are used maps so there are going to be wrinkles and paper variations~its ok it adds character to the display~just do your best to smooth it out as much as you can|
|Maps were hung with small nails placed under and above the boards.|
We used portions of maps from places where each of us were born, lived and traveled or wish to travel. Another cool idea would be to collage bits of memorabilia from places onto the maps~nature finds (rocks, seashells, etc.), pictures, brochures, postcards~really use your imagination and memories.
|We even hung up our old license plates and plan on getting a couple more from the other States we have lived in.|
We have some more projects lined up already for the next few weeks~frankly we are always coming up with creative things to do in our house so we hope you will enjoy the sharing! Please feel free to share back.....what will you create today?
