A New Home Map Card DIY

My brother has recently moved into his new home and I wanted to give him a quirky home-made card; something that showed that I had put some thought into it, something that was little different to what you could buy in the shops, with a personal touch to it.

This is what I came up with

You will need:

Paper

Printer

Colour Ink

Coloured card

Small Wooden Peg (I have attached a little wooden heart on to mine)

Button

Patch Liner Relief Paint ( gel ink)

Glue

Scissors

  • First I searched for the address using online Maps and I screenshot the page. I looked at a normal view and a satellite view.
  • From the screenshot, using photo editor, I cropped the area that I wanted to use and copied in onto a word document
  • I printed out the map images onto strong paper
  • Fold the coloured card into half to create a card
  • Making sure the road that the new house is on I drew out a puzzle piece onto one of the maps images and cut it out
  • I stuck the satellite image down onto the front of the card in the middle
  • I stuck the wooden peg into the top left corner of the card and pinching it open I placed the image puzzle piece in
  • I decorated the rest of the front with a single red button and wrote New Home

I loved how the card turned out, It has the personal touch and didn’t take much time to put together.
