I just saw a tutorial on Pinterest for making your own gift bags from newspaper. I think the maps would make cute gift bags!

Great thread - great ideas! I have a bunch of maps too. I love to decoupage with them. There's also a lot of ideas floating around on pinterest.

Similar to the decoupage idea, you could use the maps for paper mache crafts. The maps would provide a cool print on a paper mache craft so it wouldn't have to be painted when it was done.

you can use then to line wooden boxes to make seafaring/pirates chests.

I've seen crafters cover a tabletop with them, it looked really cute!

Why not use them as wrapping paper? Simple, cool.

Maps! Cover everything! I have several framed maps, or I use them as kind of a matte behind other photos! Have fun!

I've used maps as backgrounds to a couple of my paintings before..I mod podge them to the canvas or surface, and add a real thin coat of paint on top so it's colored/textured but you can still see the map through it. So there's that...It's a cool look.
