Framed Heart Maps

Supplies

  • 3 white 8x10 frames
  • 3 sheets of card stock or scrapbook paper
  • Road maps or print outs from online maps
  • Plain copy paper
  • Glue stick

Instructions

  • Each heart represents a location for the happy couple. One heart will be for where they met, the second for where they got married, and the third for where they spent their honeymoon. If you have access to roadmaps for these locations, great! If not, do an Internet search for maps or use a website such as Google Maps or Mapquest.
  • Take a piece of plain copy paper and cut out a simple heart that will fit comfortably in your frame. Use this as your template. Trace the template around the location on your map and cut out for each one.
  • Cut the scrapbook paper or card stock to fit snugly inside the frame.
  • Use glue stick to attach the center of the heart to the paper. The glass from the frame will flatten the map, so there‚Äôs no need to use a lot of glue, just tack it in the center. Insert into frames.
  • Variations: Instead of three individual frames, use one long and narrow frame with three small hearts. You can also create a larger frame with several more hearts that represent life events such as where a child was born, their first vacation, or where they spent other anniversaries.
