I have used old maps to do scrapebooking pages when we have traveled or took a vacation. Also I copied and printed maps as card stock to make reunion invitations.
(since most everyone who attends had traveled from somewhere.

I decoupaged the top of a wooden tray with map pages that had large lakes showing, then included pics of old fishing lures, flyrods, and fish. My Dad LOVED it.

I have 2 large simple wood frames in the den with the section of Utah where DH and I go to elk hunt in them. We look at them all the time and do the "Remember when" game.

You could also cover the maps with clear contact paper, then cut them out and either sew them into bags or use clear packing tape to make them into bags.

I love this idea! I might have to give it a try using my old atlas Smiley
