Assemble Map

Place the cork-covered cardboard back into the frame with the cork facing out. (You won’t be using the glass or plastic that came with your frame.) Arrange the countries and islands on top of the plain cork to resemble the world. Tip: Refer to the black template that was included in the printable to remind you of the correct placement of all the tiny islands.

Cut Out and Attach Destination Flags

Adding flags for places you've gone and places you'd like to go is a fun way to personalize this map. Cut out your favorite tags from the Map Tag printable. There are also blank flags, too, so you can write your own. Attach to the map with push pins.

Hang and Enjoy

Display the finished map alongside travel books and photos.
