There are countless DIY projects out there involving maps and those are simply in addition to just displaying them! I am a sucker for maps. I have always loved to travel and with every generation traveling a bit more than the one before, I think maps will only become increasing popular. Because of what people call travellust. So what do you do when you can’t travel as much as you would like? Just stare at maps, and make plans for one day. That’s what I do. We previously shared a very popular collection of vintage map printables, so we decided to add a few more of our favorites to your stash. Where are you traveling next?
Of course as I hunted for vintage maps, I came across some pretty fantastic ways to use them too!
