I have a love affair with antique maps, and I’ve been building up a collection of hundreds over the years, many of which I sell in my Etsy shop ArtDeco. I’ve seen all sorts of creative projects from journal-making, gift wrapping, and map bunting being done with them, some of those ideas can be found at Remodelaholic and at DIYready. Here are a selection of my favorites for you to download and print out to use.
