Map 'py' Birthday

Over at Moxie Fab World, MAPS are all the rage and we are to incorporate them in an innovative way on our projects. Since most maps I look at now are online or on my IPhone...I had to scramble to find one. But alas, this German/Swiss ski map was tucked into an old folder left over from when we lived in Germany. 



I couldn't waste the map, so I made two 5-1/2" X 5-1/2" cards. You can't have a ski trail map without a pair of skis, so I whittled two sets using a 1/2' strip of Chocolate Chip cardstock for each ski. I added a score line down the center of each, snipped the fronts of the skis to a rounded point and then curled them with my trusty pen! A brown button, which looks very similar to the ones attached to all of those funky ski sweaters, some red/white twine and you've got a fun winter(ish) Happy Birthday!
