In preparation for some upcoming travel I’ve been clearing out some old files of travel memorabilia. We had a lot of old maps hanging about and instead of just tossing them I decided to look for some creative ways to repurpose them. One of the best ideas is adding them to my gift wrapping supplies. I think they make GREAT wrapping paper! But here’s a few more ideas you might like.
