Ironing Paper

I've never tried ironing paper before, and I am no professional,
but I'll share my experience with ya'll anyway! :)

I got this old map in a tube/ roll, and the edges
 wanted to curl in when I hung it on the wall...
So ironed it out, and it lays nicely against the wall now!
 I first tried ironing it with a (steam off) med heat iron with a piece
 of cotton protecting it, but I didn't have much luck...
 So I cranked the iron up to high heat, and removed the layer of cotton.
 I pressed it twice, and I am happy with the results! :)
I have it hanging in the hallway next to my new letter!

Thanks for reading! :)
