I had a map that took up a lot of space on the wall, so instead of the whole thing I cut out parts of the map to spell LOVE. First I drew out/traced the letters on cardboard and cut out the cardboard. Then I used the cardboard to trace on the map. I cut out the map and then used mod podge to glue the map to the cardboard.
I put them up on the wall with the other pictures and mementos from my travels.
