Map Cufflinks

What can you do with an old, outdated map? Repurpose it! Try killing two birds with one stone this Christmas and take a stab at this incredibly easy (and cost effective) map cufflink set; an excellent stocking stuffer or gift idea with a personal touch.

There are a number of customizable cufflink suppliers available online. For this particular project, we grabbed some for $8.70 from Annie Howes. The top, coupled by a plastic shield, screws off of the mount, allowing for a simple switch of map locations for future adventures.

Place the top directly over the map’s point of interest and trace a circle. For this set, we used images from Benchmark Maps atlases.

Cut them out and enjoy!
