It's a new kind of scrapbook: Take a (road) trip down memory lane with a 3-D souvenir case.

Remove the back of a shadow box frame and cut a map to fit its dimensions. Glue the map to the backing, then trim the edges if necessary. Let dry. Tape, glue or pin shells, photos, tickets and other trinkets on top of the map. Put the frame back together.

TIP!: Make a bank!
Using an X-Acto knife or scissors, cut a rectangular opening that is long and wide enough to fit bills and coins.
