DIY project: Fold old maps into origami globes.
Other sheets of paper, such as magazine, catalog, book, or old sheet music pages, also could be used.
For this project, 5” square pieces of maps were folded into globes, then strung on twine. If you’d prefer to leave your globes loose, you could display a bunch of them in bowls, or group them on trays and add other items to make centerpieces (great for travel-themed parties). What other uses could you find for them?
