A couple years ago, I saw this project in a Martha Stewart magazine. I couldn't find a link to this on her website, but I found another tutorial that you might find helpful here. These paper globes are a fantastic way to recycle old Christmas cards or other holiday papers.
My Nana, who is sells antiques and out-of-print books, always sends beautiful Christmas cards made from illustrations or plates from old books. She had a bunch of extra cards from years past, so I used these to create my globes. I love how vintage they look; a very charming addition to my Christmas decor.
