So my cousin got married this past July and I wanted to make him and his new wife something as a gift (it also turned out to be cost friendlier!)

I saw a great idea online of using a heart punch to cut important places out of a map and then mounting them.  Loving this idea, I adapted it a bit and came up with this:

I included four places - where they met, where they first lived together, where he proposed and where they actually got married.  I just printed off the wording onto a cardstock paper, mounted the little maps (which I got off Google maps and printed) on cardstock, punched them out (actually I did it the other way - punched first, whoops) and then framed them, using a frame from Joann's.


And on the back, I found a Native American/Indian blessing and adapted it for them ...

It reads:

The road stretches behind you ,
even as the future lies ahead.
A long and winding road,
whose every turning means new discovery.
Old hopes, new laughter, shared fears.
The adventure has just begun!

I hope they like it. Smiley

It's a lovely idea, I hope they like it too. I would have.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

What a great idea. I might have to steal it from you someday!

I love nonsense - it wakes up the brain cells!

What a thoughtful idea.  I love it.  I might steal it from you if I'm ever in need of a wedding gift again (and it suits).
