For many of us, the screens of smartphones and GPS devices have replaced humble map pages. But in the hands of clever crafters, old atlases and road maps get a second life. These coasters, by crafter Jen Merkel, pay homage to a recent trip to Hawaii. Made with a free map, plain white tiles and a little Mod Podge, this set cost less than $7 to make. For the full tutorial, visit Jen's blog Desert Drivel.
