Perfect Paper Picker-Upper

A few months back I found this lovely "sap-bucket" at Target on clearance for $3. At the time I thought it would be perfect to hold umbrellas, however we never use them for some crazy reason, so it sat empty in the corner cove next to my front door.

When the holiday season rolled around, I knew I did not want to drag paper in and out each and every time I needed to utilize those stolen moments sans kiddos to wrap a few gifts. So I took the bucket, threw in the rolls of paper -- and they all fit perfectly. With all of those pretty colors, it actually looks like another decoration that sits beside my bedroom door and waits.

We had a red bucket that looks almost identical only maybe shorter and wider. It was one of those tins that popcorn or caramel corn came in. We've been keeping our Christmas wrap in it also. We slapped a ribbon decoration on the front handle and slip a big manila envelope with scissors, gift tags and tape down in the center. You just grab what you need when you need it.

Cant remember how I came upon your blog recently but I subscribe to your feed. Thanks.
