Has anyone else jumped on the map bandwagon? I LOVE MAPS. Always have. So this newest craze is just perfect for me!
My one friend says my nickname should be ‘Wanda’ short for Wanderer from the book The Host. I love traveling and part of that is looking at maps to find new and exciting places.
I found a wooden box at A.C. Moore for a $1. I knew I had some old maps to cut up. I painted the inside and bottom of the box and lid purple to give it some color. The lid turned out great and I started on the sides. After doing two sides, I realized there is a thing as TOO MUCH MAPS! I decided to do the other two sides with a travel themed scrapbooking page.
I am new to Mod podge, but I am amazed at how forgiving it is. I can be pretty impatient. While I love things perfectly straight, I get frustrated easily and will give up. So, I get bumps. Mod podge pretty much corrects that for me! I don’t know how, but after it is dry, the bumps go away. I am kinda a fan of the crafting tool.
