Self healing cutting mat
Exacto knife (and extra blades)
Poster paper – black
Find and print a map of your favourite city. Enlarge it on a photocopy machine to create a pleasing scale.
Place your map on top of a large white sheet of paper and tape together and then tape both pieces securely to cutting mat (so papers don’t shift). Using an Exacto knife and a metal ruler as a guide, carefully cut through both sheets of paper removing only the buildings and landmarks and leaving the streets uncut. The streets will remain intact, attached to the white paper.
Once all cuts are complete, remove the tape and carefully separate the photocopy from the white paper. Place the cutout underlay on top of a black or colourful piece of paper and affix in place with a spray adhesive.
Protect your art by framing it behind glass.
