I just came across this adorable print on Oh So Beautiful Paper. What a great way to capture a whole city or country that you loved! This would make a great DIY project with any old maps lying around or saved from vacations. All you would need is a frame and mat, an xacto knife to cut out a heart (or other) shape, and something to fill the space. Place your map behind the cutout, place it in the frame, and viola! Instant art! I’m thinking of Rome, which we loved so much, or Madrid, where we got engaged. Maybe I could even change it out based on where my nostalgia takes me.
If you’re not the DIY type or are looking for something more polished, check out the prints for sale at LuciusArt’s Etsy store.
