Despite having a smart phone, which conveniently maps nearly every possible destination I could hope ever hope to visit, I still love the look & feel of an analogue paper map! I usually keep these maps long after our travelling is done, opening them once in a while to retrace our steps via the tiny landmarks circled with my enthusiastic scrawl. Oh, I love to travel!
As you can imagine, these little map collections begin to add up! So I’ve started to use these simple keepsakes as unique gift wrapping paper. Map paper is sturdy and interesting to look at from every angle. I’ve paired it with black ribbon and a homemade chalkboard gift tag to complete the look!
Wrapping Tip: Find an interesting city or a landmark and try to position the paper so that this location is easily in sight once the wrapping is done.
Not only will you delight your gift’s recipient with this unique choice of emballage, but you’ll also have the opportunity to regale them with the travel tales this humble map helped create! Happy travels, and happy wrapping!
