The object of this tutorial series isn't just to use common items in our scrapbooking, but also to make a page quickly. I think you'll be surprised how fast this one will come together!
|Now, gently fold your map in half (I didn't make a hard crease) and draw half a heart on the folded side and cut it out (just like we used to at elementary school).|
|The heart should fit within your brown paper. If not, trim it so it does and adhere it.|
|Betcha can't guess where I got this - that's right the thrift store! See the price written on the handle?|
|Here is another layout I did using a map. These photos are from a visit to the local car show. The tire tracks are actually a tire track roller stamp, but the same look can be accomplished by borrowing one of your son's Monster Trucks, rolling the tires through paint or an ink pad, and driving all over your paper.|
There are many times that you could use a map on your scrapbooking layouts. The obvious would be a travel themed one, of course. But you could also use them when scrapping about where you grew up, a layout listing places you'd love to visit or even on a layout based on an exotic restaurant you went to (like a map of China for a Chinese restaurant). Maps also make cute and easy embellishments. Grab your punches and create map flowers, circles, or scallops!
Thank you for looking!
