Chinese Picture Scroll


The people of China have enjoyed the beauty of artistic scrolls for hundreds of years. To make a scroll, overlap the ends of two pieces of colored 8½- by 11-inch printer paper. Glue them together to make one long sheet that measures 8½ by 21 inches.

Cut a white piece of paper so that it measures 6 inches wide and 11 to 12 inches long. Write Chinese characters or draw a picture on the white paper that reminds you of China. Glue the drawing to the center of the colored sheet. Glue one 9-inch chopstick along the top edge of the scroll and one along the bottom edge. Hang up the scroll with ribbon tied to the top chopstick.
