    What do you do with left over maps and papers? I've created my shadowboxes but have a bunch of maps and other papers like resort maps still.

    I don't want to just throw them away, but I'm not a scrapbook-er.

    What kind of projects do you do with maps and papers? I'm interested in keeping them intact so I can look back at how the front pictures and maps themselves change.

    Any ideas? Thanks!

    I'm going to grab some extras on my trip in a few weeks and use them to make tile coasters. I got a new coffee table a few months ago and I ran right out to buy craft supplies (white square tiles that are super cheap at Home Depot, Mod Podge, and rubber or felt pads for the bottom) planning to use pictures, but I decided that photo paper was too thick for the project. Plus, I couldn't decide which family, friends, and pets would make the cut to appear on one of my four coasters. I was going to dig some old maps out of my to-be-scrapbooked files, but decided to wait until I can get some fresh ones so I didn't miss anything in my albums.

    I've used some to decorate the mats in my Disney pictures.

    I collect them and archive them in binders using 4x6 post card binder sheets. ( or what binder sheet they fit in if they are irregular sizes)
    The 4x6 work great for the current maps that are 4x8 as you slide them in to the bottom pockets and leave the top empty or put a place card there to document them

    My family takes as many as we can, and then they usually last us several months after our trip, saving us $3 - $4 in toilet paper expenditure.

    I like to mark the places/attractions/restaurants (on the map) that I went to during the trip that I got them. I'll usually keep them in a folder pocket in a scrapbook, but you could store them in a photo-box or something like that.

    I found that the Magic Band boxes are the perfect size for storing you extra guide maps.

    Well,my hobby has nothing to do with with scrapbooking but I collect maps. So old-fashioned you know))) I don't like maps on mobile devices , I prefer something more tangible. I bring them as souvenirs from each place I visit and store them in a box.
