Travel Memory Map DIY

This Travel Memory Map is a gift I’ve been wanting to give to Paul to keep track of our travels. I grew up in a house with a giant map on the wall of our den and love having a map around to show my kids where everything is. It’s really easy to personalize and celebrate all the places you’ve been together. I used push pins to attach mini photos of every location our family has visited around the world.  And, the best part is – we can keep adding to it and tracking our travel memories for years to come.

Materials: Spray Adhesive, Push Pins, Scissors, World Map, Large Piece of Foamcore, Printed Mini Travel Photos (Including Location Name & Date)

Step 1: Cut foamcore down so that it’s the same dimensions as your map.
Step 2: Spray the foamcore with adhesive.
Step 3: Carefully lay the map onto the foamcore. Use your hands to smooth it out so there are no wrinkles.
Step 4: Cut out the mini travel photos you’ve printed.
Step 5: Use push pins to attach the travel photos to the corresponding location on the map.
Step 6: Give to your loved one!
