I’ve often looked at the lovely bespoke map heart pictures sold on notonthehighstreet.com. They are very expensive so I decided to make my own as a gift for my husband. We both share a great love of two places – New York City and St Ives in Cornwall. We visit St Ives every year and visted New York for our honeymoon. We are really looking forward to taking our daughter to New York when she is older.
I therefore made a pair of pictures based on these two locations. I found a great map of lower Manhatten and another of St Ives. I bought the box frames from Ikea. The heart maps are mounted on sticky buds to give them a 3-D look. These are the finished things and they look great hanging in our dining room.
