Map Boxes: Origami Decor

I have had a bunch of 60- and 70-year-old maps sitting in a pile on my nightstand for a couple months now, ever since I found them in a trash pile, and I’ve been waiting for the perfect craft to come along so I can use them. (Yes, I have my mother’s hoarding gene, but how could you throw something like that away?!)

Luckily, Fran and I needed something to put change in and I had pinned something about map crafts a while back. They were very easy to make, once you get the hang of the final step. It’s a lot of paper folding, too, so make sure your maps aren’t super flimsy, as some of mine were. (Find the instructions here!)



Hope you enjoy this easy and useful craft! 🙂
