Daughter asked Santa for geeky wrapping paper (along with ‘real’ light saber and Lego Millennium Falcon). After seeing what was available on Think Geek, decided to do a quick and dirty version of the Time Bandits map, with Star Wars stuff added.
Is plain black wrapping paper with silver ultra-fine sharpie. Used a string and tack for large circle and caps and tops for the smaller ones. The parallel lines are just the width of my yard stick. Took about 2 hours. Before wrapping light saber in it, will be folding it up a bit so it looks well used.
Edit: Can’t post to FB until after Christmas.
