A new use for old maps

I know I haven’t been in touch for a while (well nearly two years) but I just thought I would blog about a few uses I have been making for old maps from my geography days.  I have always loved paper cuts, birds and maps.  It just seemed natural to combine the three.  So here is a little of what I have been up to.  (You can buy these online at my etsy shop each one comes in a box frame) Find out a little more at my other blog  www.fourandplenty.co.uk
