Easy last minute costume idea.   All you need is fabric, a glue gun, scissors and 1 hour. 

My son loves geography and wanted to be a MAP for Halloween.  Not exactly a popular costume, so I came up with this.  I don't sew and I don't consider myself crafty.  If you've seen my other instructables, you'll only see food. :)

This is an easy, minimal effort costume that took 1 hour to make.  You could use this as a template for other costume ideas such as an envelope, a wearable sign, chocolate bar, etc.

Please vote for this if you like it.  :D
