Map Wrap - from Paperchase!
Look what I found: Map wrap from Paperchase.
Yay! The 3m giftwrap roll sells for £3.50. The design is made from strips of antique maps. There's Map tissue paper
, too - 3 sheets for£2. Also - a selection of readymade cardboard boxes covered in the map design.
My papercrafty enthusiasm ties in with my recent review of Making Art from Maps, by Jill K. Berry. My Paperchase find is ideal for making many of the map-themed designs in the book - and no maps harmed in the crafting!
If you are interested in maps and mapmaking, I can recommend the very entertaining popular history book On the Map, by Simon Garfield.
