***THE PIECES: A wooden map of US State Pieces that were originally created to be the pieces to my USA Traveler's Map of Photos of the states I have traveled to. I made these map pieces to save people from the exhausting and time consuming task of exacto-knifing each individual state out of foam board plus also so the pieces would have a better quality fit. These pieces have also been used as milestone birthday presents (I did my dad's 60th and all of his vacation pictures since he was 10 years old to this year! ) , newlywed/wedding gift, puzzles in classrooms, new baby, framed by themselves without pictures as a rustic wall decoration, ways to document your nation-wide breweries and beers, ballparks or whatever your creative mind can imagine!
All 50 states including Alaska and Hawaii. Lightweight material to be able to adhere to a map, matt or print, or wood slab.
Tips : I used rubber cement to adhere the photos and valcro and zots to adhere the individual pieces to my map. To trace the photos I used a scrapbooking wax pen and/or a sharpie comes off a glossy photo with a q tip of rubbing alcohol.
Dimensions: Top of Maine to Bottom of Texas: 24" Farthest West Coast to Farthest East Coast: 37" The thickness of the lightweight wood is 1/6" All the pieces weigh about 2.2 lbs. If you want to purchase a frame for the pieces to fit in it will fit in a 30x40 frame.
***THE MAP: I have 5 versions of a map that fits the US Pieces perfectly when printed at 30x40. At this time the graphics are INCLUDED in the price. There are both color and b/w options. With your order simply send your email address and I will send the map file to you with printing tips. You can then take the file to your local printer! Easy peasy. :)
