How to build a cigarette roller

Updated July 20, 2017

A benefit of smoking loose leaf tobacco is that it is possible to buy large qualities for far less than a regular pack of cigarettes. One bag of rolling tobacco is the equivalent of numerous packs of cigarettes. Cigarettes are usually rolled by hand or with a rolling machine. Rolling by hand is an acquired skill, so some may prefer a machine; but in the absence of a proper rolling machine, construct one using paper and a pencil.

  1. Cut a piece of thick paper that is three inches by four inches.

  2. Glue the edge of the paper to the pencil and allow it to dry.

  3. Place the tobacco on the paper in a line parallel to the pencil and start to roll the paper around the pencil. When the tobacco begins to become covered, slip the cigarette paper in with the sticky side facing up and towards you. Lick the cigarette paper and finish rolling.
