No Rubber Band?




My flatmate came into the room looking for rubber bands so that he can carry a poster to class. None could be found so we improvised with a paper bag. We just cut off the bottom of a paper bag, slipped the poster through the paper loop and voila! The poster was rolled up nicely, and easily transportable under his arm. :-)

    Actually, this is better than a rubber band because the stress on the rolled paper is distributed better. You're less likely to end up with a 'cut' on the edge of the rolled paper.
