We are all about repurposing old maps. There really isn’t anything like them. They evoke nostalgia and romance, which is incredibly fun when coupled with modern gadgetry. The juxtaposition is both quirky and clever: innovation at it’s finest!

Grab an old map (or printed!) and lets get started.

What you’ll need:

  • Map
  • Clear iPhone Case
  • Scissors
  • X-acto Knife
  • Pencil

Step 1

Cut the map to the size of your case, taking care to leave a bit around the edges so it doesn’t come up short.

Cut it out. (Don’t forget to cut out the camera hole!)

Step 2

Pop your newly cut map into the clear case and voila! Easy as 1 and 2.

Short on ideas?
Here are some we can’t get enough of.
