These turned out so well, I just had to share! I found an old map of Harford County (where I used to live) and found six places that were significant to me…. my first apartment, the schools where I taught, our first house, my first office job, and the baseball stadium where we had season tickets. My first attempt at making a magnet failed miserably — the magnets that I bought were too weak. So, I’m off to search for stronger magnets and thumbtacks. How cute would these look on a bulletin board?
This idea would transfer easily to other cities, states, etc. I can’t wait to get my hands on an old atlas so I can start chopping it up!
P.S. For any fellow Harford Countians: if any of these places are special to you too, I’d be willing to part with them :) And I still have the rest of the map – I could make several sets!
