I have such a love of old maps and any chance I have to use them I take advantage of it. I found some from the 50s and thought they would look wonderful as little notecards. If you have some old maps of your own, gather them up and make some unique little notecards to give out to friends.
What you’ll need:
Step 1. Choose an envelope you want to use as a template. I chose a small one that’s appropriate to use for a notecard, but you can use a large one depending on the size and condition of your map.
Step 2. Trace the envelope template onto the map, then cut it out. Cut very carefully so the angles line up perfectly.
Step 3. Fold the envelope you made into form, then use a few small dots of Mod Podge to glue it together. When it dries, run your hand through it to make sure the insides didn’t stick together.
Step 4. To make the notecard, cut a small piece of cardstock into a size that fits into the envelope.
Step 5. Glue a piece of the same map onto the back of the piece of cardstock.
Note: Give everything ample time to dry before use otherwise the pieces will stick together.
