It is our 10th anniversary this year and in the interest of being crafty and our love of maps, I decided to tackle a Pinterest inspired timeline map gift of our lives together.

I wanted it to fit a 9 x 12 frame I had on hand, so 4 maps in the shape of hearts fit the bill perfectly. And, it so happens we have lived in 4 different places, perfect.

I used a stencil for the letters on printed maps.

Now comes the tedious part, cutting the letters out!

Letters from scraps

I used a heart cookie cutter to trace the hearts.

Trace and Cut

Here we have everything all cut out and ready to go.

I was going to leave it like so, but then decided to add a little caption under each one describing an important event that happened at each location.

Glue

Now, break out your glue stick and start gluing your map art onto some heavy weight paper like card stock.
