Map Collage

For the past 3 years we have been storing a stack of maps under our bed. They were to precious to get rid of, but not precious enough to utilize?! So, when we moved from the condo to the colonial I brushed off all the hair balls and dust bunnies, rolled them up and stuck them in a tube. For the past 2 months they have been sitting in the corner of our dining room in that very same tube. That is until, I got a bright idea!

I unrolled the maps to take inventory. Note the blue tape. It was the end of our rolls but I will surely stock up. I think it works the best to stick and then not stick and stick and then not stick...
Bye Bye Valentine's Day Mantel, hello fresh spring time mantel. Wait! What does that have to do with the maps?
 Whud Up! Map Wallpaper! Who needs directions?
 Maybe our tan living room isn't so bad after all?!
If there is an area in your home that needs a little face lift just collage it with blue tape! Other paper products you could use: wrapping paper, scrapbook paper, vintage photos (no frames necessary), love letters, old documents or brown bags- DSW Shoe Warehouse packs their shoes in brown bags with black stripes!! You must need a new pair of shoes!


  1. Unbelievable! Your creativity is astounding me yet again...

    1. Great job! This helps me to see possibilities for using maps as I plan to redo our home office.
