I wanted to make one of those maps that look like cartoons for my friends bridal shower.
I have a basic map, but i thought one of those cartoon ones would be cuter.
Does anyone know how to do these and would be willing to show me?

i’m listening in. My venue provided a boring map and i want to make it fancier!

I want a cute map so badly, I’m considering giving up and commissioning one on Etsy (Cheapest one I’ve found is $55)
Maptote.com has really cute maps if your wedding is in a major city

I didn’t do a cartoon-y one per se, but I made a map using MS Word. I went to MapQuest and got directions from our ceremony to our reception. I clicked print map so I could the picture. To copy just right click on the map and click on save picture as. Open up word and click on insert. Click on insert picture and choose your map from where you have saved it. You can move it around the page to get it where you want it. Lastly I just wrote directions and info about parking above the map. I hope this helps you out! PM me if you need more help!!!

I think the best way to go about doing a cartoony one would be to have an artsy friend help out. I don’t see how there could be a tutorial to teach you how to draw that, unless you were already artistically inclined you know?

I did the same as JoJo Bananas. Turned out GREAT! and I bet you would be able to make it more cartoony using pics etc.

Another thought– what about Craigslist? I bet there are some starving college students that would do it on the cheap!

I would agree, if you want it cartoony, to have an artsy friend help.
I made a simple one in Photoshop (well i wouldn’t call it “simple” it took me a couple days. )
I would upload a picture of the final one but it won’t let me… here’s my post but the final one looks quite better

weddingmapper has a free diy tutorial. i’m doing it for oot guests along with detailed driving directions (printed by stationer). Adding it into the invitations!
Looks kinda easy. This will be my other project this weekend besides finishing up my mossy letters and ampersand decor for our chairs at the reception!

Also the free diy tutorial of the zoomed in type of map. Not too hard imho, and can be done on word.

I used googlemaps, copied the map into powerpoint and added my own symbols and such. It wasn’t cartoony, but it served the purpose and was pretty clear I thought.
Miss Snapdragon makes those cartoony maps. Her blog is pantominepapers.com
