Make a mini craft paper roll dispenser….

At my house finding a pen that works to write with and a bit of paper is a miracle. many a day I’ve taken notes with a crayon on an old envelope.

I needed a little note pad  for grocery lists and notes,and after chopping down the large roll and dowel from the large hanger, I thought I would make a place to actually write those notes down.With a real pen. That works.

I know I showed you how to make a large butcher paper dispenser on Monday, so here’s the baby version!!!

Drill a hole on each side of your dowel rood. I drilled mine about 2 inches deep a piece.

  1. Jen – I have the same problem at my house. Never a pen and paper when you need them or I can pick up 5 different pencils with no lead in them! This is a cute idea. I might just try this over Thanksgiving break. I have the perfect spot right by the phone. Thanks for sharing.
