Welcome To The 46th Masterpiece Monday!

Frugal Gift Wrapping With A Coastal Flair

Hi Everyone!

I hope you've had a nice weekend.  I've been doing a little Christmas crafting with maps.  As some of you may remember, I hit the mother load of free maps on Freecycle awhile back. I also scored some five sided pieces from an old geography game, from a yard sale. If you don't have any maps, I've seen them sold used, with the used books for sale at my library. Not that I think you live anywhere near my library, but maybe one near you has 'um. They were only 10 cents each! Can you even get ANY thing for 10 cents anymore?
 I made them coastal by using nautical maps for the stars glued to ocean game pieces for the tags.  Tying them up with twine and seashells. Finished off with a sprig of cypress picked from our yard.
   I used different maps of California to wrap the gifts in.
 These would be fun to do using maps from other States or Countries and decorating them in that theme.  The possibility's for customizing them are endless!
