After cutting along the straight lines, poke two small holes through the newspaper along the spine, one halfway between the top of the kite and the intersection of the dowels and the other the same distance down from the intersection. Then run a piece of string through both holes and secure it to the spine using double knots. Tie a second small piece of string into a loop (the bridle) and secure it to the first piece of string. The bridle will connect to the spool of string that will guide the kite as it flies.
