Paper cutting crafty time

I was perusing Etsy where I came across some very beautiful and very expensive graphic maps and found myself saying  "I ain't paying nobody for that. I could totally do it MYSELF." It only took me a few months to assemble all of the components, which is pretty pathetic considering all I needed was paper, tape, a Google map and an exacto knife.

I taped down the card stock on a cutting board, then taped the Google map of West Philly on top and went at it with the exacto.  It took a few hours, and it made my hand tired, but ultimately it was not that bad! Threw it in a cheap thrift store frame (I will upgrade eventually) and voila! Personalized graphic art for under 5 bucks!
