I’ve seen a few map silhouettes in frames for sale and have often thought that they were overpriced. So when my Aunt was admiring one online for almost $100 i thought i should have a go at making one. This craft activity is super easy and quick to complete. If you’ve got all your materials on hand it only takes about 10minutes to put together. You’ll need –
1. small map of australia about 12x12cm
2. square frame 20x20cm
3. heart template
4. white cardboard
Trace an outline of a heart onto the map of Australia using a template and very carefully cut it out. Cut a square 20cmx20cm from the white cardboard and stick the heart in the centre using double sided tape. I used good quality card for the backing with a little gold shimmer in it. I’m not really happy with the colour of the map, so i’m going to see if i can find some vintage atlases to make a more colourful option. Overall, a super quick and easy paper craft activity.
