Can you tell what historical period/tradition we’re finishing up this week? There are no papers with a good papyrus pattern on them. This is the best look alike option for some ancient Egyptian lookalike scrolls, but it is patterned after bamboo. I do have some actual papyrus, but for a hundred kids, I have neither the amount necessary, nor the budget to purchase the real deal. I wonder if I could make something similar out of corn husks?

This one is a parchment texture, but it’s more medieval European than Egyptian.
