Creating Border
I cannot find a dragon wall border for my 10 year old son's bedroom. I was thinking about making my own by copying his Yu-Gi-Oh cards in strips and then attach the strips with glue. I'm concerned that paper might be too thin and thought I may attach the strips to some wallpaper border paper and then attach to the wall. Has anyone done anything like this before. I'd love some help and guidance as to materials which would work best. I am planning to use a wooden rail above and below the border. Thanks.

Maybe you could find some plain neutral colored wallpaper and add the strips to that.

You might try Dover Publications and search for stickers for images of dragons. Dover also has an extensive line of coloring books, some of which include magical/mystical animals.

If you put it at the ceiling, I think it could work fine. You can get large color copies at a copy store and then cut longer strips for the border. Wallpaper borders at chair rails height and 10 year old boys are not a good combination.
does this work?
