World map markers By Brittany Jepsen of The House that Lars Built | Photography by Trisha Zemp
Baby Freia arrived on May 9th, so while I take some time to rest and bond with my little girl, an amazing group of blogger friends is helping “fill in the gaps”. Enjoy their amazing posts! PS: Happy birthday dear Brittany
I’m most pleased to guest blog for sweet Audrey while she’s busy bringing new life into the world. Audrey and I share similar stories. We both have husbands from Denmark and are now living in the states after spending a few years in their home country. I’ve had my grandmother’s globe sitting on our credenza and I’ve been wanting a way to make it more personal and show where we are from so I thought I’d take the opportunity to create some markers that you can add on to a globe to either show where you are from or where you’ve traveled.
toothpicks or skewers
Step 1: Cut strips of paper about 3” wide and ¾” tall.
Step 2: Write your message on your strips.
Step 3: Curl the paper using the flat edge of scissors to give it some shape.
Step 4: Glue the sewer to the edge of the paper.
Step 5: Glue the flags directly on the globe. I found that the glue doesn’t affect the globe.
I love having this globe in my house to describe where we’ve come from. It’s a great conversation starter!
