Where Have You Been? Printable map with flags.

I loved this idea when I saw it! Pin pointing places my husband and I have visited in the USA since we have been together.

Go here and print out the jigsaw map on cardstock paper.
I printed it in landscape mode so it scaled down the pieces a bit.
Cut out the pieces and arrange on a corkboard.
(Don't worry, many states are attached together so it isn't that much cutting)



Using a glue stick, glue the pieces onto the cork board.


Now it is time to print your flags. Use this generic template:
OR
 Download this publisher file I converted which allows you to type and customize the flags.
Put the date on one side of the strip and the town on the other side. When folded it will create a two sided flag.


Cut out the flags and place glue on the back and fold in half around a push pin (or I used picture nails which worked well)


Place the flags in the cork board where you have visited.
(Whoops, husband just noticed I put Seven Springs, MD instead of PA, lol.......)



We need to get off the east coast! After February we will be able to add some flags in California! Can't wait!

  1. This looks awesome! Thanks for sharing. I can't wait to do the same thing! What overall size is the map once it's assembled?

  2. Despite, the fact that, this is a tricky question, the answer to it is very simple. Based on a simple theory, everything depends on the site of the advertising banner, where it is being displayed.Wholesale Printing Company
