May the 4th Be With You (Star Wars Gift Wrap)


We've talked Star Wars wrapping before, but does it ever go outta style?


Not for any little boy (or full grown man) I've ever met.

"There is good in him. I've felt it."

If you have black paper, you're practically there.

Wrap your box. Put two dabs of hot glue onto opposite edges of another full sheet of construction paper and tack down to create "shoulders" of the cape.

Type in "Darth Vader printable" and you'll find ridiculous amounts of outlines to choose from. I say outlines because who has copious amounts of black ink? Not me. Print out a guide onto some cardstock (the heavier weight will keep it from wrinkling) and let a kiddo paint in the rest. Name was traced onto some yellow construction paper and popped on with a glue stick.

Only 7 more months until the release of Episode 7, but who's counting?

  2. I read this to sound like you cut out the name by hand? You have a very steady hand, impressive. I would be VERY interested in anything you did for Nat'l Teacher appreciation day that was earlier this week.

  3. These are just too darn cute. Will have to pin these ideas and use them for my son, who yes, is a grown man. He'll love them and so will my husband. We are breathlessly awaiting the new movie too!
