Jacquie's Up-Cycle Nation: Map It

Map art is the way to go this spring!  Colorful and nostalgic, paper maps are being recycled into new works of whimsy popping up at parties and as fresh decorations. 
These Etsy up-cycle artists are ready to fill the map craze demand!
Celebrate spring with a sweet garland of colorful birds! LaMiaCasa crafts cottage chic beauties from a wide variety of papers including vintage atlas pages. Swing into her shop to feather your spring nest!

Put that cupcake on the map with topography toppers from Artesenias! Map art is only a small portion of this artist's inventory of festive fun.  Favorite this shop for one stop party planning!
 Pair party cupcakes with coordinating treat bags form TCWitcraftFactory! These small favor sacks come with compass stickers to seal the look.  Shop here to continue the travel theme with hand carved stamps.
 Add cottage kitsch to any space with up-cycled map-wrapped lights from LittleLightsShop.  Perfect for the travel trailer on summer road trips!  Decorate the office cubicle to keep those day dreams alive. When a map is involved the possibilities are endless!
