Map-Envelope Book

These homemade map envelopes will hold your souvenirs and remind you of where you’ve been (as well as how you got there).

What you’ll need

  • Envelope template
  • 1 large map or several smaller ones
  • Glue stick
  • Small hole punch (we used 1/8-inch)
  • Paper fasteners

How to make it

  • Map-Envelope Book - Step 1

    Use the template to cut envelope shapes from the map (our book is made from three envelopes). To assemble each envelope, fold in flaps a and b, overlapping them. Glue them together, then fold over flap c and glue it down.

  • To bind the book, stack the envelopes and punch two holes through the sealed ends, 2-1/2 inches apart and 1/2 inch from the edge. Use the paper fasteners to hold the stack together. Secure each envelope by folding over its open end, punching a hole through it, and closing with a paper fastener.
