If your Christmas gift needs a special wrap... WHO YA GONNA CALL?

People forget the real meaning of the Holidays. No, it's not about family, it's not about friendship and sharing and gifts and Santa and Jesus. NOOOO! These are the days before Vigo, the Scourge of Carpathia, the Sorrow of Moldavia, returns from the dead to rule the Earth!

So, in tribute of the only heroes capable of defeating Vigo the Unholy, I made a special gift box in the form of a Ghost Trap. You introduce the present inside the box and the receiver must open the trap doors for extracting his gift.

NOTE: THIS IS A GIFT WRAP, NOT A PROP OR A MODEL. If you want to make an accurate replica of the ghost trap, be my guest. But:
  1. I made this with stuff easy and fast to find or replace.
  2. Maybe you have another gifts to wrap (unless this is a present for a very special person)
  3. You don't want the wrap looks cooler than the present. Do you?

Well, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year for all the Instructables Community (the awesome Instructables.com Staff and my fellow makers). YOU ARE THE BEST!

And, as Dr. Peter Venkman said:

"I love this plan! I'm excited it could work! LET'S DO IT!"
surely ink would get on your hand?
That is beyond gift wrap, i would love to find a ghost trap under the tree!!! NEAT!!!

Thanks Rooster! Well, it would be a good gift wrap if the gift inside are the ECTO-1 keys! :-)

This is excellent. One thing I'd add, though, is that since I'd hate to waste a good marker (assuming you don't have a dead one lying around), I'd rather take a toilet paper tube and cut it down to the right size tube (it will already have a curve to it), then cover it in black tape or paint or something. Then it's upcycling the TP tube too.

Thanks Susan!! Well, I used an old marker. I always have plastic junk in stock! :-)
