Type out your menu into Microsoft Word and print out on to an A4-sized sheet of brown paper. Draw a template like the one here (2) around the menu. Cut out the template using a scalpel. Fold and stick the tabs together (3). Add a border on the top edge by using a decorative punch. Fill with breadsticks.

If you're not too crafty then get someone with neat handwriting to ink it on instead.
