~ Vintage Map Paper Decorations ~


I recently hosted a tea party to
farewell a dear friend off to teach in China.
After a little insprational browsing
on Pinterest I came up with a map theme
for my Bon Voyage tea party.....






I was lucky enough to have a
vintage atlas in my stash
so I got tearing and cutting!!!!






I cut little triangles
to make paper cupcake flags
using toothpicks (which I later
glued using a glue gun).






I folded some paper to make
those lovely rosettes.







I made some pinwheels
from a template on the internet.
I used some little brads from Kaisercraft
to secure them at the centre.






Then I made some tags
to decorate the table.

I glued some old buttons to
decorate the rosettes
and bakers twine to use to hang them.

Since I am on a map theme today I
thought I'd also show use
my flying ducks...
These are the ones from Kaisercraft
which I covered in a Cavellini & Co
map (wrapping paper).

There is something so pretty
about this vintage map paper,
it was a delight to create with too.

Hope you have been inspired
to get creating with paper now,
I imagine old children's books
would look just as effective
(I might try that next!).

I think that you could certainly
adapt the idea for some school
holiday fun with the kids!
