Give Invites a Global Theme

Fold a printed map page in half, then cut along the fold to make two pieces (Image 1). Fold one of the cut pages in half to create two pages (Image 2). Place the map page face down on the inside of the cover, lining up the folded creases. Staple inside the creases to attach the pages to the cover (Image 3).

Add Your Itinerary
