This pinboard will add interest to a blank wall – and bring the big wide world into your study. Daydream away!
STEP ONE On a clean floor, lay out your printed map (refer to Google world map or an atlas). Use sticky tape to attach all the A4 sheets together. STEP TWO Place the completed map on top of your sheet of cork and secure in place with sticky tape.
STEP THREE Cut around the large continents and countries with scissors, adding extra tape if required, then carefully trim around the printed lines. STEP FOUR Consult Google Maps to correctly position all the cut-out continents and countries. Fasten to your wall with picture hanging strips.
