Map Lined Envelopes

Today’s blog post is about two of my favorite things: maps and stationery.

I enjoy using maps in craft projects, and I also enjoy adding decorations to all the plain and boring office supplies that I own. I recently found a stack of envelopes hidden in my desk. I knew they would look perfect with a map makeover!

Supplies:

  • Road Map
  • Glue Stick
  • Scissors
  • 3 5/8″ x 6 1/2″ Blank Envelopes

 

Trace the outline of the envelope on the map.

Then, cut out the map piece and trim it so that it will fit inside the envelope.

Finally, spread a thin layer of glue on the back of the trimmed map and put it inside of the envelope. Use your fingers to remove any wrinkles.

Use the map lined envelopes for a travel themed wedding or party. They can also be used as a fun way to mail letters.
