I call this the interactive, travel, pin up map!
This map creates a fun, cute way to track your travels across the wonderful USA!
All you need is a cork board from Good Will ($2.99), pencil, sharpie, ribbon, pins, stapler, and a Dremel [the fun, hand held power tool that cuts through e v e r y t h i n g!] Oh yea…you can’t be a perfectionist because you would drive yourself mad trying to outline the states!
First, draw the outline of the United States on your cork board. I attempted to print out a template…but in the end, I traced the outside edge, and filled it in by hand. I recently found THIS template at Design Sponge…There are actually 6 templates that you tape together…I think it would be very helpful p.s. erasing is not good.. .see south Texas. Use the sharpie to make a dark outline…
Use your handy dandy Dremel to cut the outline out.
Now, draw in your states, make your little pins [I used the Silhouette to cut out the flag shape], staple the ribbon to the back of the cork board, and hang
