Measure and Mark Map
Spread map out on long, flat surface. Using tape measure, measure inside dimensions of frames; combine this to determine needed width and height of map area to be framed. Mark area on map using pencil and level — a level provides a straight edge perfect for drawing continuous, long lines.
Using scissors or utility knife and level, cut map to size along inside of pencil marks. Place frames on map to ensure correct dimensions. Remove frames, divide map into fragments based on inner dimensions of frames. Mark map using pencil and level then cut out map sections.
Frame Map Fragments
Once all cuts are made, insert each map fragment into a frame. Tip: Be sure to clean glass before inserting map.
