I traced the stencil shapes onto an old Mapsco & cut them out using an Exacto knife. Be mindful of the shape & how the details of the map can enhance. After cutting out, it is best to lay out the shapes to decide proper placement.
Using Elmer's Crafts Glue to attach the cut outs, I used tweezers to place the cut outs. After the glue had fully dried, I added a coat of water-based, clear polycrylic to the entire shelf.
We were so pleased with the way it turned out!
