This "why didn't I think of that!" project from Jordan Ferney is perfect for Great Escapes Month. What better way to plot your exit strategy than to pinpoint your dream travel destinations on a map. Use one pin color for places you've been and other for places you'd like to visit. This project encompasses our two favorite things — it's cheap and simple...

For this simple project, Jordan mounts a $12 map to foam core. The full project instructions and photos are available from Project Wedding.


The awesome map tacks from The Map Center absolutely make this project. In addition, to the semi-precious stone map tacks above (Yes! Semi-precious stones used as map tacks!), they have little flags pins and tacks with crosses, dots or stripes. Fun!
