Aviation charts are made with fantastic quality paper. The problem is once your map expires, you can no longer use it for navigation. Instead of simply recycling the paper, a lot of pilots will reuse it for things like wrapping paper or stuffing packages. Here, I've turned a few charts to fun looking envelopes and a few gift card holders.
Vancouver/Victoria, Iceland and Azores
A close up of all those lines and symbols:
I made the gift card holders out of a different type of chart. The paper is of the same thick quality as the others.
I like to have fun and mark these as "Not Intended for Navigational Purposes." As if someone would try to use a square of an envelope to help get where they are going.
It would be amusing if you were sending a card to make the envelope from where you or they are.
Thanks for looking.
