What should i do for my world map project?

I have to draw all the continents and all of the countries on them. I need help trying to decide how I will add texture and make it 3D. Any ideas? My map is kinda big, Africa is about the size of half a paper and everything else is proportionate. Since it 's this size, all of the countries are labeled so there is a lot of words. I have no room to like glue sand on or add things. Should I restart? And if I do restart, what could I use to add texture?
If it has to be on paper use color and shading to add texture. Follow the shading schemes used on a physical map found in an atlas. If it doesn 't have to be on paper you could restart and make a model version using paper mache or plaster. Texture can be added with sand, glitter, whole wheat flour, glue, dried spices and herbs, etc. Do this first, then use flags on toothpicks to label the countries, or write them on after the texture application has dried.
