You'll need a few supplies.
Carbon paper (tracing paper)
Your design printed on copy paper
Blue painters tape
Paint (craft or house paint work fine)
Paint pens or brushes
And a bulletin board.
You can find bulletin boards in abundance at thrift stores, but they're inexpensive at big box stores as well.

First, decide on your design. I've made these a few times with a map of the US and also just simple typography.
Then, print your image to fit the size of your bulletin board, and tape it into place.
Then, put the carbon paper underneath, and trace your design.

When you remove your paper and carbon paper, you'll see your design really well on the bulletin board.

Next, using paint or a paint pen, simply fill in your design.
Once it's dry, it's ready to be used as an organized display for your travel memories!

If you'd like the map design, but aren't sure how to size it to your bulletin board, just print it out on several sheets of copy paper, place them on the board, tape them into place. Then repeat the above steps for a perfect design!

Of course, travel mementos aren't the only thing you can use this bulletin board to display.
My daughter uses hers in her college dorm to organize her jewelry. This is perfect because space is limited already.
