Step 1: Step 1: Flat Paper.

Just have a Flat paper. I used Small note pad paper but Regular full size will work great

Step 2: Step 2: Start to Roll

Yeah. just Start To roll. But be careful to not Crease the paper. it goes bad if you crease it.

Step 3: Step 3: Finish Roll;Unravel

 In this step you will start the next part of the tutorial. finish the roll (pic A) and unravel.

Step 4: Step Four: Roll on Other Side.

As there are two sides to the piece of paper, you have to repeat the process.the first pic is the finished product  and the second is the rolled version.

Step 5: Step 5: Unravel/Finished Product

Okay. You're done. however if the curves are too sharp and whatnot. Feel Free to fix them as you see fit. Now you're ready to gear up in a kilt and kohl and go out as a scribe.

    I'm guessing you've played assassins creed because of ur profile picture so u know this isn't how scroll's were like in real life and Egyptians didn't really have scrolls

    Egyptians did not use white lined paper. Get some parchment or vellum style paper at the stationery store. Find an Egyptian style font online, download it, and print something out on the parchment using that font. Then roll up the scroll and tie it with a cord. Much more authentic.
