Push pin travel maps are quite expensive, ranging from $30-$100s or more depending on the style/quality.
You can make your own for less than $10! This makes a great, thoughtful, and inexpensive gift for someone who enjoys traveling, or for yourself/family. I made this gift awhile ago and you can see the map in use.
Total Time: 15 minutes
- foam poster board
- ball point push pins
- strips of paper
- Measure your map on a poster board 2 times, and cut out 2 pieces. This is so when you use your ball point push pins it'll stay in place.
- Glue 2 poster board pieces together.
- Glue map onto the poster board. I bought the map from Paper Source, the version I bought is no longer available, but here is the next best: https://www.papersource.com/gift-wrap/world-map-flat-wrap-405848.html only $5.95!
- You can either use ball point push pins to mark where you've been and leave it as that. Or, write/type onto Microsoft and print out dates and cut out. Fold printed dates over and secure the inside with a little tape or glue leaving enough room to poke the push pin in.
