We love this vintage map tape by Ruby Murrays Musings because it's sure to make our loved-ones smile when they receive our curiously wrapped present. This tape is so unique, it will add flair to even plain brown postal paper. Plus, it's made from every-day items, so it's a win-win! Keep reading for the how-to.

What You'll Need:
Double-sided Tape
Old Map/Atlas (that you don't mind cutting up)

How to Make It:
1. Decide which side of the map or atlas you would like to use (we recommend using a side with a lot of sea and land contrast for great colors).
2. Lay your double-sided tape smoothly in straight horizontal rows across the backside of the map you want to display. Make sure to leave a small space between each piece so you can easily cut them.
3. Carefully cut the pieces of tape with scissors and you're all ready to adhere the sticky sides to your package. Enjoy!
