Clearing the trunk of my car, I realized that I had amassed a PILE of maps and directions. Despite using a GPS when I can - I'd NEVER throw out those paper maps. You never know when your GPS battery will fail. Besides, sometimes its fun to just look at the maps and see what's around you.

Tools & supplies for this project:
2) cardboard (two, 10X10 inch squares)
3) two plastic shopping bags
4) one 30 inch shoelace
5) scissors

Step 1: Layout

Step 1:
Set your two cardboard squares about 1.5 to 2 inches apart on a surface that won't be damaged by the duct tape. I used a 'self-healing' cutting board laid out on the family washing machine. (It was raining and I didn't feel like running out to the garage to do this.)
For a first attempt at an instructable I think you have done a sterling job matey... welldone. We make Ductape wallets with my scouts and they love them. I personally would just put ductape on the inside of the pockets instead of using the plastic bags... but still I love the way your idea works<br><br>Welldone, Can't wait to see what you come up with next. Let me know if you need a hand with anything.<br><br>One of my coveted highfives for you<br><br>
Thanks, Biggsy. <br> <br>Right - duct tape would have worked just fine to line the pockets. <br> <br>I just got paranoid over the possibility of some of the stickum squishing out from under the edges of the tape and upcycled the shopping bags to solve an issue that, probably, only existed in my head :-) <br> <br>Appreciate the highfive. <br>
Even still... it's a great i'ble matey well done... I'm considering giving it a go myself
