Simple Solutions: Map coasters for Christmas

Use old maps with special significance.

Cut the map to the shape of your coaster using a craft knife then paint the coaster thickly with water-based glue.

Paste on the map and smooth out bubbles and flatten under a pile of books until the glue is dry.

Trim the edges neatly.

Spray with clear varnish to seal (in a well-ventilated place!)

Tie them into a stack ready to gift.
