could you get a book of maps at a bookstore and use those pages (which might be sturdier)?

You could glue them onto cardstock, then cut out your design.

You could probably use the maps and then back it onto cardstock?

I would definately use an actual map, online image won’t have the same paper texture, and may get pixelized.  You could also try e-bay or used book stores for maps that have the look you are going for.  I also love the idea of using pieces of the map that are important to you.  For example, the man/woman one could maps where you are each from, or the hearts could be where he proposed, or a special trip you went on.  I love your idea, very cute!

I would definitely go get real maps. As you say CAA members can get free maps.

I would glue them onto cardstock or even foamcore for a bit of dimension.

Do you have a map that you actually used on a special trip together?

I would find someone with a Cricut that has SCaL who can cut out any graphic based font. You can get those man/woman picture fonts free online. Then glue the map to card stock. Put the glued card stock into the Cricut and cut it out.

I don’t have anything different to add to the pp’s ideas, but I do LOVE this crafty project! I love maps of all kinds and I’ve never thought to use them this way. 🙂

@bakerella: Excited to see how these turn out, I’ve been seeing them on pinterest (not that I’m addicted or anything) and they look so cute!
