How to Make

1. Choose an interesting part of a map (or print out a picture of a map), then place a foam heart or heart template over the area and draw round with a pencil.

2. Cut out the heart from the map and stick it to the card front, slightly above the centre.

3. Cut out a rectangle from a plain-ish part of the map. Try finding a part that has horizontal lines as this will make the next step easier.

4. Pick up the ‘I’ letter stamp, press it into the ink pad then onto a scrap piece of paper first to practice. Once you are happy with the amount of pressure the stamp needs, start stamping letters onto the map, to spell out ‘I would be lost without you’.

5. Measure and draw straight lines around the message. Cut out using a craft knife and ruler, making sure you work on a cutting mat or some scrap card.

6. Once the ink has dried, apply some glue to the back and stick the message onto the card front just below the map heart.
