Then finally I had the time! I went to Pinterest to find whatever blog that photo was attached to and I got a big fat nothing. Apparently that blog has disappeared from the internet and I had to wing it.
Luckily, I've been scrapbooking and paper crafting since my first son was born
Stuff I used:
Multiple copies of all the park maps, including Disney Springs.
a 2" square puncher and/or a 2" hexagon punch (I made one for me and one for my sister)
Gray Stazon Ink pad
Acid free cardstock
Acid free glue stick
11 x 14 picture frame
The paper these maps are printed on now is pretty thin and cheap. It has to be! They print millions of these a year, right? So, knowing that my punches tend to rip thin paper, I put strips of masking tape on the other side of the map to bulk it up. Then I trimmed the map so I could punch out exactly the part that I wanted.
I drew faint pencil lines on the cardstock so I could line the squares up evenly, with the same amount of space around each tile. When I used the gluestick to glue them down, I liked the way they looked but I thought they needed more OOMPH. So, when I started to play with the hexagons, I got out the ink pad and sponge dauber. You can use any kind of ink pad, but with the glossy coating on the maps you run the risk of smearing ink. Stazon dries pretty fast and doesn't rub off. I used gray because I wanted to define the edges but didn't want the edge to be black and in your face.
So put the dauber on your finger and tap it on the ink pad to load it with ink, Hold the hexagon or square at a 45 degree angle and rub the dauber along the edge. If you change the angle, you can control how thick the ink edge is.
Here's the two sheets all done, pre-framing
And here it is hanging on the wall in my library. I LOVE it.
