Map Pencil Holders

Here is another project using Mod Podge.  I was inspired by David at Cheltenham Road who always has fabulous projects using Mod Podge and colourful graphics.  David once used a map on a lamp and I think maps have great colours and graphics and add a personal touch.  Maps are great as mementoes for people who either live in the area or have travelled or married somewhere in the world other than home.

I created some 2" x 2" pine from my rough stock.  Two of my holders were shellacked, and one was painted white.

The first holder I cut 4 1/4" long and drilled 7 pencil holes. The map is a local one and extends all the way around the block:

The second holder is painted white and the city map is on the top, where the 7 holes are and then continues down the front of the 4 5/8" long block:

The third pencil holder is 8" long and has 15 holes in it.  The map is local and extends completely around like the first one:

So far, I've made three of these holders, but hope to sell more through my etsy shop where they can be customized to whatever place buyers choose.
