Introduction: Bulletin Board World Map
This map can be used as decoration or as a nice way to mark where in the world you have been! The continents are laminated and pinned to the bulletin board.
To make this map, you need:
- Bulletin board (Or anything to attach you maps to)
- Outline of each continent
- 7 different maps
- Tacks (If you are using a bulletin board, otherwise tape or glue)
- Laminating sticker sheets
Step 1: Cut Out 7 Maps
Find or make the 7 maps you want and cut them to about the size of printer paper.
Step 2: Cut Out Continents
Now you need to find and cut out all 7 continents and find a map that fits their size.
Step 3: Trace and Cut Your Continents
To do this you lay your continent down on the BACK of the map (this makes it easier to see you lines) but also make sure you didn't flip your continent too, that will cause your map to be backwards. After you have traced an outline, you cut all the way around it as exactly as you can.
Step 4: Laminate
For this step you might need 2 pairs of hands, it helps to make sure you don't get any bubbles in the middle. To do this you need to cut out 2 squares for each continent. When all of your squares are cut out chose a continent to start with, lay down one of your squares and peel the back off. Then set your paper in the middle and don't mess up because it will cause you to have to start over. Lastly cut around your continent to get rid of any excess plastic.
Step 5: Attach to Bulletin Board
To start this step, you need to lay your continents out how you want them to look. Then you pin them down and you are done!
