Make Road Map Bird Houses

Every year or two, my husband and I like to replace our road maps with new ones. It’s always nice to have up-to-date maps, but then we are left with the conundrum of what to do with the old ones. They’re too interesting to throw away but no longer serve a practical purpose for us so keeping them seems kind of silly – unless they are to be given new life in a craft project! Amanda at Crafts by Amanda used some old maps to dress up wooden bird houses, and they turned out absolutely adorable. What else would you decorate with outdated or unused maps?
