Step 1: Get an Old Map

Get an old map and use it to wrap up a present!

Simple though very effective. Maps are so wonderfully graphical and seeing them in an unusual situation as the wrapping for a present makes the present more surprising.

I have been using an old road map that was out of date and had a number of key pages missing, we all have them kicking around in the car foot well some place.

I have worked my way up the UK over the past couple years and am now in Scotland. Such a beautiful country and one that I was very fortunate to live in for a few years.

Okay here we go....tear it out, trim the ragged edge and wrap up your present and you are done!

Please give it a go, works nearly as well with newspaper and magazines.

If you have enjoyed this I would really appreciate your vote for this Instructable in the Hand Tools Only Competition.
