I’m working on making a present for my brother in law, His daughter bought him one of those Bottle cap maps of Michigan last year but only got the worst part, the Lower Peninsula AKA the mitten.
So I’ve decided to make him the better half AKA The U.P.
I’ve read through this thread in Tips and tricks: Passthrough Alignment Tutorial with Manual Indexing
But am still struggling due to my inexperience in Inkscape let alone any other design software.
Here’s where I am so far. I’ve got the peninsula to scale based on the map he already has and have placed my cut outs for the caps. I believe I will do a double layer of ply on the map to help with sturdiness and maybe prevent warping. I may remove some of the cap spaces so I can spread them out a little more.

Anyway, I’m having trouble grasping the whole manual pass through idea. Also can’t for the life of me figure out how to cut it into the appropriate size sections using inkscape. Any direction or asssistance would be appreciated.
