Map messenger bag: process in the making 2

I've been ironing and ironing plastic bags. I cut out some maps and put plastic bag around the paper and tried to flatten everything out. It seems like they were bounding together alright, but I was fooled!
When the plastic is still warm it maintains the flatness, but as soon as it starts cooling down they shrivel up!!! Check out the pic and you'll see what I mean.
My guess is that I can't go on with the bag made of maps. Ok, I just came up with an idea...I'm still going to try to stick to the Traveler's theme but now I'm going to sew all mixed wrappers with diff types and characters to represent diff places around the world, diff logos and symbols.
