"Where we love is home...home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts."
Create your own, unique map art
I purchased a new picture frame for this project. The frame had a bar code insert. I used this insert as reference to cut the area of map to fit in the frame. I placed the insert over the area where I wanted to highlight in the frame. Using an Exacto knife, I cut around the edges of the insert.
Next, to make the heart, I first needed to create a template. I needed a heart shape to fit in a 5x7 picture frame. I created this silhouette in Picmonkey and printed the shape on to a piece of computer paper. You are welcome to download a free heart printable below.
With the Exacto knife, I cut out the heart shape. Then, I placed the heart over the cities that I wanted to showcase. With a pencil, I marked where the edge of the heart template needed to be cut.
Now I am able to showcase the cities that have fond memories for my family and I.
