Mimicing an ancient style book
This was a very old school project in which my topic was the evolution of Chinese writing. So I decided to make my booklet like the old ancient bamboo books from China (see attachment). Instead of using bamboo strips, I used the cheapest and simplest things I could find, Popsicle Sticks! I glued them together to form 'pages' and drilled holes on the side and bind them with rope. It's ancient style with a modern twist ;)

  • Step 1

    Glue popsicle sticks side by side to desired length. Repeat steps until you have enough 'pages' to form your book.

  • Step 2

    Drill holes on the side of all 'pages'

  • Step 3

    With a rope or yarn, insert into holes and tie knot at the back

  • Step 4

    There you have it. You can leave it as is and write on it or glue printed paper onto it like mine.
