In the Designer's Words: "Upcycle a plain magnetic notice board or tin tray with maps to make a fantastic map magnetic board. Also using shrink plastic can make some adorable travel themed pins for your board. This board would look great in a teen bedroom or home office. It also makes a great gift for those with wanderlust.This board looks awesome in my sons room, he loves looking at it and daydreaming about future travels.  You can use any map you want, so you could use a map of your favorite city, map of the USA or a world map.  It would also make a great educational tool in a child's bedroom."
