Christmas in July - Day Twenty-Two

Here are some really cute ideas with maps.  They make great gifts or ornaments for yourself.  You can use maps of where you met your spouse, where you were married, where your children were born, or other significant locations in your lives.

I love this one mounted on a wooden heart - I don't see this shape available but there are others here
This is a decoupage idea on a round ornament
This tutorial will show you how to make this great framed piece


  1. Wow, what great ideas in today and yesterday's posts. I like to re-purpose maps, sheet music, pages from ruined books, and you've given me some creative inspiration!

    1. One of the loveliest gifts I've received is a pine cone ornament made from pages of a book. I think I have a close-up - if I can find it, I'll put it up tomorrow with the story that goes with it.

  2. Beautiful! I've never repurposed maps but will do it

  3. I did the heart ones last year. They were a big hit. I am doing more this year. I did local streets where we grew up. Tanya
