Memorialize those special vacations by creating map coasters of all your favorite trips!
My little family loves to travel, and we try take at least one trip per year to someplace new. Even before children, my husband and I loved to explore and took several trips around the country. We all love to look at photos and relive our experiences. But I wanted an everyday item that could help us jog our memories!
Map projects of any kind are always super popular. These updated map coasters are a great keepsake of your favorite trips together, whether it be as a couple or as a family, and useful as well.
I found these Mason jar lid coasters at Old Time Pottery.
This project is a perfect upcycle for an outdated atlas like this one. Alternatively, you can print specific map locations from your computer. Turn the coaster upside down on the portion of the map you want to use. Draw a circle around the coaster then cut out just to the inside of the circle you drew. Apply decoupage to the top of the coaster then place the map on it. Once dry, add little hearts to the special location(s) on the map. Give the ink a few minutes to dry then top with a coat of decoupage.
