DIY: Corkboard Map of America

In DIY by Laura

I had some extra corkboard lying around and decided I wanted one of those corkboard maps that you can pin and so that everyone can see all the places you have been. This was especially appealing to me because I spent my first year of college traveling to ten or so countries.

My little ambitious self realized that carving out a map of the world with an exacto knife in my bedroom would be harder than I thought. I settled for a map of the good old U S A. I followed a tutorial on design sponge and that was that.


  • Corkboard
  • Xacto knife
  • Templates from design sponge

Print out the templates and tape them together. Overlay the template onto your piece of corkboard and cut away at the edges!
