It was my birthday a couple of weeks ago and I am very lucky to have lots of fabulously creative pals, which makes for lovely creative gifts. A particularly crafty couple I know decided to wrap my presents in vintage maps. They looked so good I really didn’t want to open them! The thing about maps is not only do the look beautiful, with all their painstaking detail they inspire a wanderlust that is inherent in the vast majority of us. So why not introduce more crafty cartography in our everyday lives.
