DIY Vintage Map Ornament
I love vintage maps and they are really easy to find and really cheap! You can cut them up, scrapbook and craft with them and not feel the least bit guilty that you are ruining something old. (Unless it’s an ancient treasure map, don’t cut that one up!)
Are you ready to start folding? I won’t lie, this is pretty time consuming but you can totally do this while watching tv or waiting for the turkey to thaw. Also, make your ornament personal. Use a map from your home town or home state. Or this would be a great gift for a friend that has moved away as a keepsake.
Your first fold should be corner to corner to make a triangle.
Next fold each corner up to the top of your triangle. Use a bone folder or the edge of your credit card or something to crease your lines so that they are really flat.
This is probably the trickiest of the folds. Take those corners that you just folded up and open them up and down so that they form a kite shape.
