Travel map


I love to travel.  And have always wanted a large-scale map to track my past and future excursions.  I just never realized how easy it would be to make one until I came across this post in Oh Happy Day!  

Start off by purchasing a 24"x36" map from National Geographic online (costs about $13) and foam core of the same size (can be acquired for under $5 at Home Depot).  Then, using spray adhesive (also under $5 at Home Depot), glue the map onto the foam core.  Add a frame, if desired.  And start pinning away!  Speaking of pins, there are so many options - anything from the regular round dot pins to mini flags to little metal airplanes. 

Quite the conversation piece!
