Last week we celebrated the lovely Miss Holly's birthday with some southwestern fare in downtown Dallas and...
Holly had requested an iris folded U.S. map several months ago with a special ask--she wanted it big! This took a little thinking on my part. I needed to find a frame the right size and then I needed to figure out how I was going to cut out a map that big.
How big, you ask? Well, if this is the size of the original iris fold map I did...
...THIS is the size of Holly's map.
I eventually ended up using my Silhouette Cameo to make the map out of two 12" x 12" pieces of cardstock and pieced them together.
Then came the fun part.
I used paper from two different atlases.
...and this one.
And two different dictionaries, too.
A mat and a frame later, and Holly got her big map.
Interested in a giant iris fold for your house? Give me a shout. I have lots of atlases waiting to be swirled.
