You will need:
Map
Glue Stick (does not need to be fancy)
Bangle Form (Use a bangle you already have to find something the same size. Mine is a coffee mug)
Decoupage medium (or liquid glue mixed with a bit of water)
Rotary Cutter (you can use scissors too, if you want)
Ruler
Board (to protect surface from blades
Memory wire
Scotch tape

*I got the idea for this from this instructable. I added a bit to make it more suitable for a larger size.

Step 1: Cutting the Paper

Using the rotary cutter, cut strips 3/4" wide. I ended up using thirteen 24" strips.

Great idea! Using up old sectional charts (used by pilot's for navigation) this way would be cool. You could have your base airport as the outer layer.

That's such a great idea!
This is a great idea, I made two bangles from a london underground map. I love the geometrical patterns and they're functional too. Thank you for this. x

Great instructable, I liked the ring one, but think this would be more practical. Good work.
