Ever get in tragic accident and wanted to write your last will? Ever wanted to leave a short, yet totally awesome note in someones jacket pocket for them to discover? Or have you ever wanted to brush up on your caligraphy while waiting at the doctors office?
With the pocket scrolls you can do all that and more! Plus, they look so cute when you pull them out of your pocket. Best of all, they're supper easy to make and relatively cheap.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
The only things you will need for this instructable is:
Paper
Any straight, round, tiny piece of wood (I used skewers)
Glue (Any kind, but preferably something strong)
Scissors
Imagination (Hopefully I will be publishing instructable for pocket-sized imagination soon)

Step 2: First Step: Design

Before you even think of what you want your scroll to say, you must make it look fabulous first. And the best way to do that is with an awesome border on the edge of the paper. If your having trouble coming up with an idea for a border, or simply can't bring it to life then you should do what I did. All you have to do is look up guitar strap designs put it on a word processor. Make sure that there is two designs and that they are at lest an inch apart. Print it out and it should look like this.

P.S. FYI, I did multiple ones, just so you know.

Step 3: Second Step: Getting Ready

Cut out your designs from the paper so it's a long strip of paper with a boder on both sides. Also, you should go ahead and cut off a small piece of wood from your skewers. I suggest you do that after you have cut out the design, since the wood will have to be a little longer than the paper on both sides.

What if you poured gunpowder into the paper, rolled it into a scroll around a stick with a 5-second fuse taped to it, lit the fuse, and threw it? I wonder if it would shatter into somewhat of a firecracker (like the ones that go into the sky, since the stuff you see is actually just burning paper) or would cause it to unroll super quickly? I think the first one would be awesome. This only goes to show you how many countless uses can come from a general-purpose scroll!
Ahhhh, and we get ever closer to the paperbomb
your brilliant ideas intrigue me red baron. how may i be of assistance? lol
the stuff you see is really burning salts

Thanks a bunch for the cool idea. I am making an instructable and am planning to use this in it. of course i plan to give credit to you . I have a question- How Would you keep it from unravelling?
you might use those tiny rubber bands from braces. if you want something more permanent though i would suggest a tiny drop of superglue.
