Recycle for OSM's 10th Anniversary

Posted by robert on 2 August 2014 in English (English)

Next weekend is OpenStreetMap's 10th anniversary and people around the globe are celebrating.

If you've been around OSM for a while I'll bet you have a pile or two of these old flyers which have now been superseded by these ones, generously produced by Andy Allan. These old ones are therefore kind of useless. However, not being one to want to throw things away I've been searching for a use for my old ones for a while.

Required items

You will need:

  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Two old OSM flyers

Tape applied Lining up other leaflet

Use tape to join the ends of two flyers, making sure you get the orientation the way you want it.

Joined in a ring

Join the remaining ends of the flyer strip, producing a continuous ring of flyer.

Cutting corner

Re-fold flyer ring back on top of itself and cut off top corner at approximately 45 degrees.

Completed hat

Unfold, don:


And.. oh god I look like an idiot.

Happy birthday OpenStreetMap.
