Tried That: Cinsarah Heart Map Art Tutorial

Tried That - cinsarah Travel Hearts Map Heart Art DIY from Cinsarah

Last October, Michael and I went to London and Paris...
Michael at Trafalgar
Michael at Trafalgar Square
Mandy at the Louvre
Long-Haired Me at the Louvre

...and I came back with way too much paraphernalia (tickets, brochures, etc.) in hopes that some clever idea would strike me for how to memorialize these items.  To date, nothing had struck me, and in fact, I'd even forgotten that I'd brought all this crap valuable stuff back until we went to use a backpack that we'd taken on the trip and found it.  I finally got my butt in gear and put to use this simple map heart art how-to from Cinsarah.

So, all of this...
Travel Hearts 1

...became this sleek little piece of art.
Travel Hearts 2

I discretely labeled each item on the back for posterity.

And now, all that crap has a neat little place on our dresser.
