Paper rolling is one of my favourite techniques but I must admit, I have to be in the right frame of mind to use it as it can be quite fiddly depending on how thick the paper is that I want to use. Thicker paper doesn't roll as neatly and takes extra adhesive to keep it intact, however getting to use all those gorgeous papers makes it worth while.

Step 1.
Cut strips of your chosen papers in 6cm lengths but various widths to create the staggered look.
Step 2. Place a couple of strips of double sided adhesive across each strip, approximately 1cm away from your starting end and half a cm away from the finishing end.

Step 3. I use a tooth pic or skewer to roll my paper but you can use whatever you have that will make the thickness that you want. Roll the strip into a cylinder. Don't worry about the end tab sticking out as you will glue it down when you are ready.

Step 4. Have your layout ready for your strips... I place my ruler across the page to make sure I keep in a straight line when laying the rolls. Place a strip of glue across the front and the back of the tab and then push it down onto the layout and hold for a few seconds until the glue sets.
To avoid your layout puckering from the glue, you may wish to stick your rolls onto a strip of clear acetate first and then transfer it to your layout and adhere it with double sided tape, either way works fine.
I would love to see some rolled creations in the gallery, just give it a go!
