Notepaper Roll

68435_copy-451x321.jpg

I'm always looking for scraps of paper to jot down notes or directions as I'm about to leave my apartment. I dislike using stickies because of the way it sticks together and collects lint as I shove it into my pocket, so I'm always tearing bits and pieces from notebooks or printer paper which really annoy me after awhile. I love how substantial the Blomus Muro Notepaper Roll Holder looks - like a nice paperweight on your desk - and the roll of paper accommodates lists of any length very nicely.

This is old retro tech revisited--this was around in the late 1800's and there are some great Art Deco Designs from the 20's. Just goes to prove what is old is new again.

Lisa Harrigan:

I made one of these for my mother in the 60s.
This is actually the poorer of the two designs. It's better if you loop the roll under the writing surface, then feed it onto the writing surface so the the free end is near the top, that way the list can get longer and longer as you pull it up before you rip it off.

It's either that or do as the demo shows and start your list at the bottom. Not nearly as natural.

A good one will also take an adding machine roll as they are cheap and easily available at any stationary store.

YMMV.
