Step 2: Preparing your letters and map
5. Put something heavy on top of the letters and have a cup of tea.
6. Look at your maps, decide what features you want to be able to see. Get your letters and play around laying them out trying to get all your points of interest on. Do not put your letter upside down on the paper but have the front pointing towards you.
7. Cut the map piece out. There are a few ways to do this. I used a scalpel but if you have children doing this I recommend getting them to draw around the letters with pencil then cut them out with scissors. The finish won’t be as nice as with the scalpel but you won’t hurt anyone!
