Turkish Fold Out Map

And why stop there!  We have many books in our collection with fold out maps.

Here are the full instructions for a Turkish fold out map.  This is a great one for children and a little easier on the folding and glueing.  These make lovely greetings cards too, print off a map of a special place or a place where you are going to take someone on your next holiday and send it in the post!

You’ll find ideas for children at the end of the instructions.



Extra, extra fold out, read all about it!

Here is a simply cheats way of a lovely fold out card (could be used for a map too!).  Click here for full instructions!
