DIY Map of Australia Heart Print

paper craft map of australia

I’ve seen a few map silhouettes in frames for sale and have often thought that they were overpriced. So when my Aunt was admiring one online for almost $100 i thought i should have a go at making one. This craft activity is super easy and quick to complete. If you’ve got all your materials on hand it only takes about 10minutes to put together. You’ll need –

1. small map of australia about 12x12cm

2. square frame 20x20cm

3. heart template

4. white cardboard

5. scissors, pencil and double sided tape

Trace an outline of a heart onto the map of Australia using a template and very carefully cut it out.Β australia map heart Cut a square 20cmx20cm from the white cardboard and stick the heart in the centre using double sided tape. Β australian map craftI used good quality card for the backing with a little gold shimmer in it. I’m not really happy with the colour of the map, so i’m going to see if i can find some vintage atlases to make a more colourful option. Overall, a super quick and easy paper craft activity. πŸ™‚
