Tissue Paper Dispenser With a 5 Gallon Bucket

About: I'm a 45 year old Systems Architect living in the Midwestern United States. After travelling the world for 20 years as a consulting architect I became disabled, as a result, I am now embracing a Slow life.

Whether you are shipping lots of packages, or routinely putting together gift bags, you have to deal with large-sized bulk tissue paper. As you can see from the picture, these large, unwieldy stacks don't fit well on a shelf or tabletop. The solution? Make a dispenser similar to a "wet nap" dispenser and hang it with a hook.


Step 1: Stuff

Carefully fold the tissue paper along the long side, and place in the bucket as shown. I find it works better if you divide the stack in half and stuff them in the bucket side-by-side. Pull up on one of the center sheets.

Step 2: Hang

Snap the shelf hook onto your shelving and hang the bucket. Now you can just grab individual sheets like you would wet naps at a picnic!
