Recycled Map Ornament

Materials Needed:

*old book of maps (sheet music, an old novel, or an art sketch could all work here as well)

*cardboard, the more design the better

*glue, string, and any other decorations you would like to add

Next, you will want to cut a shape out of the cardboard.  I chose a star:

After you have the base shape of your ornament, cut out a slightly smaller version of the same shape in your map, book, sketch, or sheet music.  Whichever you choose.  Glue the second piece down.  Punch a hole in the top to add your string to hang the ornament from and add any other decorations you would like.  I chose a bit of simple ribbon and a button.  There you have it!  An extremely simple, yet beautiful ornament in under 10 minutes.
